Prevent trailing newline in Powershell Out-File command
How do I prevent Powershell's Out-File command from appending a newline after the text it outputs?
For example, running the following command
"TestTest" | Out-File -encoding ascii test.txt
Produces a file with contents "TestTest\r\n" rather than just "TestTest"

In PowerShell 5.0+, you would use:
"TestTest" | Out-File -encoding ascii test.txt -NoNewline
But in earlier versions you simply can't with that cmdlet.
