Problematic blank lines from gcc

Hello all,

I’ve found that the output of “gcc -E” (and qcc) generates
lots of blank lines between each non-empty line. In comparison, gcc -E on
the same .c file on a Linux system has very few blank lines.

Can anyone suggest why there are so many blank lines, and if I can suppress
them (they seem to be confusing cflow)?

Many thanks,
Neil

Is it possible you’ve got MS-DOS type line endings ()
that the preprocessor is converting to doubled newlines?
