Usually this is a result of the wrong end-of-line characters being used, depending on what the output device expects.

In UNIX, end-of-line is just a line-feed, in MS-DOS/Windows end-of-line is a carriage-return line-feed pair.


You may need to change the end-of-line characters to suit your needs and output device.

Hello,

Does anybody know why text files sometime go double lined?
That is, there somehow getting one empty line in between every line.

I work with a lot of people across many platforms and I find it very annoying
when large pieces of code or language gets doubled up like that.

Would anyone happen to know how to then:

1) Reduce all empty single lines to no lines
2) Reduce all empty double lines to a single line

To restore things?

Thanks,
Kyrre
