Concatenate two lines in one

Does anyone know a way I can fix my file below where it has lines that are cut?

Just like the (notice the space before ms,c=PH)..

Code:
dn: cn=english,ou=Messaging,ou=lang,o=subject,t=j
 ms,c=PH

which should be
Code:
dn: cn=english,ou=Messaging,ou=lang,o=subject,t=jms,c=PH


The whole text file goes like...

Code:
dn: cn=english,ou=Messaging,ou=lang,o=subject,t=j
 ms,c=PH
objectClass: top
objectClass: javaContainer
objectClass: javaObject
objectClass: javaNamingReference
javaReferenceAddress: #name#subject.lang.Messaging.eng
 lish
javaReferenceAddress: #1#versionID#4.0.1

Sorry for my english!

A solution with AWK :
Code:
awk '
/^ / { line = line substr($0, 2) ; next }
{ if (NR>1) print line; line = $0 };
END { print line }
' inputfile

this should do the job
Code:
sed -e :a -e '$!N;s/\n //;ta' -e 'P;D' infile

Code:
$ cat infile
dn: cn=english,ou=Messaging,ou=lang,o=subject,t=j
 ms,c=PH
objectClass: top
objectClass: javaContainer
objectClass: javaObject
objectClass: javaNamingReference
javaReferenceAddress: #name#subject.lang.Messaging.eng
 lish
javaReferenceAddress: #1#versionID#4.0.1

$ sed -e :a -e '$!N;s/\n //;ta' -e 'P;D' infile
dn: cn=english,ou=Messaging,ou=lang,o=subject,t=jms,c=PH
objectClass: top
objectClass: javaContainer
objectClass: javaObject
objectClass: javaNamingReference
javaReferenceAddress: #name#subject.lang.Messaging.english
javaReferenceAddress: #1#versionID#4.0.1

I had to google to find the meaning of 'OMG'. I think it's not "Object Management Group" Smilie.

Another way with AWK :
Code:
awk -v RS="\0" '{ gsub(/\n /,""); print }' inputfile
