[isf-wifidog] Blank lines in files...

I'm refactoring a bunch of files with old untranslated comments and  
documentation from french to english ...

I found that many files had blank lines at the end... which is bad  
since it breaks XML outputs (which breaks the Google Maps mashup)
I'm will clean those up, but I will also give you a little secret  
script I use ;-) This simple PHP script tells you which files  
contains blank lines outside php tags. Very helpful since you don't  
have to scroll through all files to find them.

See ya

<h1>This script will find any blank lines and/or characters outside
PHP tags</h1>
     // Quick and dirty PHP script that will find all files  
containing characters that would break XML files
     // (c)2005 - Francois Proulx
     function findBlankLines($dir)
	    $dir_handle = opendir($dir);
	    while ($file = readdir($dir_handle))
	    	if(is_dir($file) && $file != "." && $file != "..")
	    	else if(preg_match("/\.php$/", $file))
	    		$path = "{$dir}/{$file}";
	    		// match any characters occuring once or + outside PHP tags
	    		if(preg_match("/^.+<\?php(.+)?\?>$/s", file_get_contents($path)))
	    			echo "File : $path <br>";
	    		if(preg_match("/^<\?php(.+)?\?>.+$/s", file_get_contents($path)))
	    			echo "File : $path <br>";
