Chris,

Insert these into your existing .emacs file in your home directory (~),
or create a file in there called .emacs with the following lines in it:

;; don't let next-line add new lines at end of file
(setq next-line-add-newlines nil)

;; make edited files end with a carriage return
(setq require-final-newline t)
