I am not understanding your comment here. In the line of
code above, is there a problem or not?
Specifically, is it not the case that the last line of
a text file is not guaranteed to have a terminator? E.g.,
Does this not raise the possibility that a digit will be
clipped from the last line?
Of course strip will afterwards strip any line terminators.
