Append Command: Appending on a new line

When using the MS Windows ftp.exe there is an append command. From what I have seen, when appending text files, it just directly appends the new file to the source file without making a new line.

For example:
Source: test
new: anothertest
outcome: testanothertest

I would like to see to see a new line before the new file is appended:
outcome: test
anothertest

How can I achieve this result?

It might be annoying, but you could do two appends. Create a text file with a carriage return in it, append that to the remote file, then append your other text file.

With he other alternative adding a line to the start of the text file being appended.

Okay if I have a blank line at the beginning of the appending text file it works. But I like your first suggestion better so that in my code I can just have it append the line return text file first so that I don't have to mess with my other files. However, the only problem is I can't get a text file to save with just a line return. When I open it again its always just blank again. Any idea of how to do this?

Ah, notepad just doesn't recognize it when you open the file again but it does exist. Okay.
