The following message is a courtesy copy of an article
that has been posted to comp.editors as well.

The world would be a better place if more editors implemented emacs'
show-trailing-whitespace.  That way folks would be aware of all the 
wasted whitespaces at the ends of lines in their files.
[Maybe it should even be on by default in emacs.]
I stuck a trailing whitespace on one of the lines above. I bet the
reader can't see it.
Awareness yes, but of course I wouldn't go overboard and strip
trailing whitespaces automatically, as sometimes they are on purpose:
cut ... -d \ 
(though one could rewrite it as cut -f3 -d ' '; cut -d \  -f3)
