Syntax

Object.DeleteTrailingSpaces
Object.DeleteTrailingSpaces =
Value

Data type

Boolean

 

Description

Returns (first syntax line) or specifies (second syntax line) whether trailing spaces are deleted during a file transfer.

Most text processing programs use delimited lines and paragraphs, and thus do not need blanks preceding a delimiter. Deleting trailing spaces during a file transfer can save a great deal of disk space. This property is relevant during ASCII file transfers from the host and for logging or copying to disk.

Values

The default value is True.
