name
   roundfile: rounds off a file by droping incomplete last lines

synopsis
   roundfile(input: in, output: out)

files
   input: a text file, possibly ending without a carriage return.
   output: the text file from input copied, but without the last line
     if that has no carriage return

description

   Remove partial lines at the end of a file.  For example, if a
   program is creating a xyin file, the file may be incomplete because
   of a partially written output buffer.  But one may still want to
   graph it even thouth only part of a xyin line has been written.
   Since the xyplo program would object to a partial line, the
   roundfile program removes the incomplete line, allowing the graph
   to be created.
