 NAME
      ssp - remove multiple line-feeds from output

 SYNOPSIS
      ssp

 DESCRIPTION
      ssp (single-space) removes redundant blank lines from the standard
      input and sends the result to the standard output.  All blank lines at
      the beginning of a file are removed, and all multiple blank lines
      elsewhere in the file (including end-of-file) are reduced to a single
      blank line.

      ssp is typically used in pipelines such as

	   nroff -ms file1 | ssp

      ssp is equivalent to the 4.2BSD cat -s command.

      To remove all blank lines from a file except at beginning of file, use
      rmnl (see rmnl(1)).  To remove all blank lines from a file including
      beginning of file, use rmnl piped to ssp, or ssp piped to rmnl.
