 NAME
      rmnl - remove extra new-line characters from file

 SYNOPSIS
      rmnl

 DESCRIPTION
      rmnl removes all blank lines from a file (except at beginning of file
      as explained below), and is useful for removing excess white space
      from files for display on a CRT terminal.	 Groups of two or more
      successive \n (new-line) characters are reduced to a single \n
      character, effectively eliminating all blank lines in the file except
      that one or more blank lines at the beginning of a file remain as a
      single blank line.

      To remove redundant blank lines rather than all blank lines, use
      ssp(1).

      To remove all blank lines from a file including beginning of file, use
      rmnl piped to ssp, or ssp piped to rmnl.

 EXTERNAL INFLUENCES
    International Code Set Support
      Single- and multi-byte character code sets are supported.
