Or what about this?

use warnings; use strict; my $file_line; while (<DATA>) { if ( /^FILE/ and !/\s+[0-9]+ \\$/ ) { ( $file_line = $_ ) =~ s/[\s\\]+$/ /; } elsif (/^([0-9]+)\s+?(.*)$/) { $file_line .= $1 . " \\\n" . $2; print $file_line, $/; } else { print; } } __DATA__ FILE TEXT VAL 9999.999 08-jul-2014 \ 270 3E4497B6B8482ADED734 HDNDFLHWLEJHFL LKSNFLKN \ WKENFLWHFELHN UIEKEFJBKJFN FILE TEXT2 VAL 9999.999 16-may-2014 60 \ 8EC4B7367989D54F6D6C HSHFGFLALKHF KJAHEFKHAH\ YRNBFLJNELFN LQJFLKJWEF LKJFLKWJF
Output:
FILE TEXT VAL 9999.999 08-jul-2014 270 \ 3E4497B6B8482ADED734 HDNDFLHWLEJHFL LKSNFLKN \ WKENFLWHFELHN UIEKEFJBKJFN FILE TEXT2 VAL 9999.999 16-may-2014 60 \ 8EC4B7367989D54F6D6C HSHFGFLALKHF KJAHEFKHAH\ YRNBFLJNELFN LQJFLKJWEF LKJFLKWJF
Note, it not checking to know the number of fields in the FILE line, but assumed that the line that follows the FILE line should not start with all number and the FILE line should end with all numbers.
Working just on assumptions and "funny" idea, using if/elsif/else. The OP can take it from here.

If you tell me, I'll forget.
If you show me, I'll remember.
if you involve me, I'll understand.
