Thanks Bruce.

I used lseek() to get the file length, subtracted 2 from this value and
then used ftruncate() to remove the CRLF bytes from the last line.

This worked fine and I was able to input the text file to the 3rd party
Wintel app without any problems.

Have you looked at the ftruncate() API? If I understand you correctly
you could get the length of the *STMF, subtract 2, and truncate to that
length.
DSPF will continue to show trailing controls, but a DMP will show that
they are indeed gone.
