And I was going by memory. So shame on me. I just went and looked at
Osis2mod does not get rid of any "extraneous" whitespace, but it
calls FileMgr::getLine, which trims whitespace from the beginning and
the end of the line. I also think there is a bug in its handling of
line endings, in that in some places it just checks for 13 and others
just 10 and yet others both are looked for.
From what I can determine FileMgr::getLine is called by swcofig,
osis2mod and imp2gbs.
I think this should be replace with a call to std::getline. This is
used by imp2ld, imp2vs, and xml2gbs.
(for completeness, it should be noted that vpl2mod defines its own
readline, which reads one character at a time into a buffer.)
