WordPress Plugin Development Noticeable Error

When I was developing a free plugin to be submitted to WordPress.org repository, I encounter a weird line says
The plugin generated `n` characters of unexpected output during activation. If you notice “headers already sent” messages, problems with syndication feeds or other issues, try deactivating or removing this plugin.

I troubleshoot it by doing trial and error until I found and deleted this last line of php file


Basically PHP code should look like this

<?php /* your code here */ 

You can omit the 3rd line and it should work.

This seems to be the culprit, based on my experience, this shouldn’t be worried enough and it’s just a minor WordPress problem, you can contact the plugin author for this error in order to help them developing their plugin flawlessly.
