    Am trying to copy contents from a text file to another file and it crates an empty line at the end of the file every time.

    Using PS v 3 and tried most of the available methods/one liners in the web, Any thoughts ?

    So... why not just use Copy-Item?

    I've recently stumbled upon the extra linefeed in textfiles created with powershell and found a nice solution for that on Stack Overflow
