hp41cx utility function to trim an ASCII EM file
Can anyone help me recall a small utility function that automatically resized an EM flle to the minimum size for its current number of records?

I thought it was in the original forum?

Thanks!
Todd

Define "minimum number of records": all non-zero, consecutive, at the END of the file; is that it?
So the routine4 will have to start checking from the last record, counting records until finding the first non-zero value. There can be more zero records in-between that one found and the file head, but those should remain, correct?
