In CC mode, there is the (customisable) variable c-require-final-newline,
an association list, which you can set to either t, nil, or "don't
touch!" for each language independently.  The thinking is that some
languages' syntaxes absolutely require a final newline (I haven't myself
checked if this is true), and that only in those languages (C, C++,
Objective-C) is c-require-final-newline set to t.
