Dear ?

May I encourage you to send such questions to the mailing list, and not 
as private mail to the developers.

It depends on your OS.

In GNU/Linux (and I guess Mac OSX), it is quite simple to use either a 
tool such as sed, with a rule like

s/ $//g


sed "s/ $//" BascFin2.ply > CorrectedFile.ply

Or you can use a similar regular expression in a text editor such as vi, 
gedit or whatever your favorite.

I don't know what the capacities of standard MS Windows tools are in 
that respect.
