Decades ago Paul D. Smith posted the attached script
"rm-tspaces.el" to the fvwm-workers mailing list:  When you try to
save a buffer with trailing whitespace, it asks you whether you
want to remove them before saving.  Very handy.  (Can also be
configured to do this automatically.)

My configuration:
-- ~/.emacs --
;; Removes all trailing whitespace at the end of all lines--this setting
;; makes it ask you by default.
(require 'rm-tspaces)
(setq-default rm-trailing-spaces 1)
;; Turn it on unconditionally for various programming modes
(add-hook 'emacs-lisp-mode-hook 'rm-trailing-spaces-always)
(add-hook 'cperl-mode-hook 'rm-trailing-spaces-always)
(add-hook 'c-mode-common-hook 'rm-trailing-spaces-always)
(add-hook 'makefile-mode-hook 'rm-trailing-spaces-always)
;; Turn it off unconditionally in other places
(add-hook 'message-mode-hook  'rm-trailing-spaces-never)
(add-hook 'nnfolder-save-buffer-hook 'rm-trailing-spaces-never)

;; rm-tspaces.el: Automatically clean trailing whitespace from buffers.
;; Copyright (C) 1995  Paul D. Smith <psmith@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
;; This file requires Emacs 19 or above.  It should work with both Emacs
;; and XEmacs.  Use (require 'rm-tspaces) to load this file (don't
;; autoload it).
;; For user-invoked whitespace cleanup, the function rm-trailing-spaces
;; can be bound to a key or invoked via M-x.
;; The variable rm-trailing-spaces controls behavior when the buffer is
;; saved.  By default nothing is done.  See the documentation of this
;; variable for details.
;; The variable rm-trailing-spaces is buffer-local.  Use setq-default to
;; set the default value for all buffers.  Use setq to override the
;; default value for a particular buffer.  If you're going to put the
;; setq in a hook, use the handy hook functions at the end of this file
;; to avoid having to write your own.
;; For example, to be asked about removal for all buffers, except
;; automatically remove spaces in C files, try something like this:
;;  (require 'rm-tspaces)
;;  (setq-default rm-trailing-spaces 1) ; any non-nil, non-t value
;;  (add-hook 'c-mode-hook 'rm-trailing-spaces-always)
;; Note the user is only queried when there is actually trailing
;; whitespace in the buffer (e.g., the buffer would be modified).
;;  This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
;;  it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
;;  the Free Software Foundation; either version 2, or (at your option)
;;  any later version.
;; Changes:
;;  1.2 - Add version info.
;;        Add simple functions to make installing in hooks simpler.
