1872Suppress EOF trailing newline?
- Jun 11, 2006ME insists that all text files shall end with a newline. To the point
of adding one, free of charge, even when the file didn't come with one.
Unfortunately, this screws up many programs that import data into a
database. (Today's example is Intellisync for BlackBerry.) It sees the
newline and thinks, "Oh, there's another line". And promptly complains
because it can't find any fields.
Often, I can fudge things by manually inserting a ^Z before that newline
(this works for Windows programs). But I don't feel like I should have
to do this every time.
Is there any way to turn this behavior off?
(If not, I'd like to request it.)
