Hi all,

   I'm a happy user of ediff, both for diff and  merge. What I have
not been able to to
  and I really need is to configure it  _NOT_  to complain about
missing newline ad the
  end of a file.

  I frequently need to compare files and I really don't mind if they
have a final newline or not.
  It's ok a warning but I want it to go ahead and show the differences
while now
  I just see a single buffer with the warning and no ediff windows/

Hmmm, it seems like it ought to do the right thing out of the box:

,----[ C-h v ediff-diff-ok-lines-regexp RET ]
| ediff-diff-ok-lines-regexp is a variable defined in `ediff-diff.el'.
| Its value is
| "^\\([0-9,]+[acd][0-9,]+
?$\\|[<>] \\|---\\|.*Warning *:\\|.*No +newline\\|.*missing +newline\\|^
| Documentation:
| Regexp that matches normal output lines from `ediff-diff-program'.
| This is mostly lifted from Emerge, except that Ediff also considers
| warnings and `Missing newline'-type messages to be normal output.
| Lines that do not match are assumed to be error messages.
