in thread Remove whitespace between lines

FYI, FWIW, several versions of awk have been ported to MS Windows. Until a few years ago, I used a version that was packaged along with make and a few other Unix tools as part of code generation application we use with many of our projects. We used the make and the awk from that package in our build scripts because everyone in the SW department had the package installed. Now we use Perl instead of awk (but still use make).

    Yes, thank you for the information, RonW. As I said in my previous post, I suspected that awk had been ported to Windows, but it is probably not commonly available (in the sense that it is not natively there on a fresh Windows install, so that most users probably don't have it). OTOH, the OP has Perl installed, and Perl is able to do just about everything that awk can do (and much more), so that recommending awk did not make much sense in that specific case.

    Je suis Charlie.
