How to remove a newline at end of file

Those who know me know that I don’t like Perl. Sometimes in life the thing you don’t like could be best tool/friend.

I need to remove a newline character from a text file: layouts/partials/pagination.html.

git diff layouts/partials/pagination.html
diff --git a/layouts/partials/pagination.html b/layouts/partials/pagination.html
index 00c1124..d8dd981 100644
--- a/layouts/partials/pagination.html
+++ b/layouts/partials/pagination.html
@@ -15,4 +15,4 @@
         
         {{ end }}
     {{ end }}
-
\ No newline at end of file
+

The easiest way to do this is to run the following command:

$ perl -pi -e 'chomp if eof' layouts/partials/pagination.html

Thanks Perl and this Stack Overflow question.
