Why do you think that this is so hard to do?
Well, I do not find this hard. It is quite easy to join the lines into paragraphs using regular expressions (wildcards) under MS Word or Libreoffice Writer. I guess that you had also PepitoCleaner extension in mind when you asked this question. The tricky thing is in case of lines ended with ful-stops (questionmarks) which are not end of the paragraph. It is difficult to join properly these lines using this solution.

Sorry for the confusion by my quoting. My above quoted question was addressed at BryanMatt who had opened this topic, not to zbgns.
