ant/metadata API - "No newline at end of file" - Stop it!

Developer Tools

This is one of those things that no other platform in the world has a problem with. For some reason, every sf:retrieve option brings back classes, triggers, pages and components that are missing a newline at the end of file. It doesn't matter whether it had one when you sf:deploy or not, it's just gone for no reason.

Text editors that correctly understand that every line of text in a text file has a newline at the end of file will put it back in, sometimes that gets checked into version control, and when you retrieve it shows up as a diff again.
