\r for newline in readlines function

I did more investigation into my previous problem
and what happens is that my text file has \r for representing
a new line instead
of a \n. is there a way to tell the readlines
function that the symbol for a newline is \r rather
than \n ? right now the readlines function reads
the\r as another item in the list and just puts
everything into one big list because it
doesn't find any new line characters.
 thanks. i'm really stuck because
i can't read my data right now.
