Could You help me to write a function that would remove trailing blanks
and tabs from each line of input, and it would delete entirely blank lines.
Thank You!

Are you referring to an input stream.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

If you want to use CStrings, you can use TrimLeft and TrimRight.

Basically, your code would look like this:

   CString myStr;
   
   // Set the value of myStr here
   
   
   myStr.TrimLeft();
   myStr.TrimRight();
   while(myStr.Replace("\r\n\r\n", "\r\n") > 0) ;
   while(myStr.Replace("\n\n", "\n") > 0) ;

I can write code using traditional DOS string functions if you like.

You mean to remove all white spaces and blanks is it?

#include <stdio.h>

void main()
{
    char string[20];
    int i=0;

    printf("Please enter the string below\n");
    fflush(stdin);
    gets(string);

    while ( string[i] )
    {
      if ( string[i] != ' ' )
          printf("%c",string[i]);
          i++;
    }
}

Hope it helps
