The text2file() function appends a newline at the end of the file it is spitting text into, even if the variable being dumped doesn't have a newline at the end. Calling the function multiple times on the same file will cause many newlines to be appended to the end of the file.
Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:
1) Use text2file("my_text","my_file.txt")
2) Open my_file.txt to see "my_text" with a newline after it, call the function more than once and notice multiple newlines.
Code Snippet (if applicable) to Reproduce Problem:
Text to be written exactly as it appears in the variable.
Newlines being appended to the end of the file.

Append \... to the end of the text you're spitting into the file.
