Wouldn't hurt to take the ?> out of most MyBB files entirely...

If a file is pure PHP code, it is preferable to omit the PHP closing tag at the end of the file.

I think we can do this together with the typecast one, so we can push it in beta 3.

If a file is pure PHP code [...]

Does it means it wouldn't work if in-line HTML is used? There are some files that do, that should be easy to fix.

Yes, it does mean that Omar.

I'm completely for this. It is a well known best practise, but I'm sure there used to be a style guideline against it.

It was decided last year we wouldn't be removing them. But half that page is ignored anyways and there is nothing actually wrong with this, is it?

Yes, some files that contain inline HTML (especially in the ACP). The script I'll create will need to check that.

I can update those so the script simply removes the endings. I even think this can be done manually :P

It is not like the typecast one that checks for multiple instances.
