I don't want the Compace option to erase all blank lines.
only socials command next blank line.

I'm sorry. I don't know English very well.

New lines are created by adding "\r\n" to the end of strings sent to send_to_char() function (act() already includes newlines).

So I believe the specific "\r\n" that you need to remove is this one, in act.social.c:44 :
if (!argument || !*argument) {
    send_to_char(ch, "%s\r\n", action->char_no_arg); /* <---- remove the '/r/n' after %s */
    act(action->others_no_arg, action->hide, ch, 0, 0, TO_ROOM);
    return;
  }
Can you check if that works for you?

On a side note, removing that will also remove newlines from emotes which do not need a target (ie. dance).
You could check for that using the fact that all socials that do not require a target also have "action->others_no_arg" set and not null. So the check would be something like this:
if (!argument || !*argument) {
    send_to_char(ch, "%s%s", 
      action->char_no_arg, 
      action->others_no_arg ? "\r\n" : ""); /* <--- this will check if there is a message to be sent to others and add a newline only if something was sent to the room */
    act(action->others_no_arg, action->hide, ch, 0, 0, TO_ROOM);
    return;
  }
But not sure if that would be enough for you since most of socials.new have "others_no_arg" set.

Am I missing something?

> accuse
Accuse who??

I don't see a blank line. I thought it might be because I use an outdated version but I saw the same thing online. I thought it was possibly related to toggle compact but I see that my home version has it toggled on and the online version has it toggled off.
