Hi all,

I have a curious problem with packages (when using Mathematica 3.0 for
IBM compatible machines). For example, I have created a package ( or
received a package created by somebody else), and now want to modify
the package. Sometimes, the package itself does not open, but an
untitiled notebook displaying the package content. In this case, I have
tried to make my modifications within the notebook, then use Save AS
Special -> package to save my modifications.  Furthermore, every time I
open a package in this manner (not getting the package, but a
notebook), Empty lines are inserted after every single line of code.
After a few modifiations, the package contains mostly empty lines
(exponential growth of these).

What can I do??? Can you please send a copy of your answer to me
directly, as I canot always access the newsgroup.

Thanks in advance,
