Shrini,
To my knowledge i think empty lines will not affect performance.

If it is wrong,please correct me.

Thanks,
Muthuvel.

Yes, it will not affect performance. During compilation itself blank lines and commented lines will get rejected. So your link edited modules will not have any blink or commented lines in them while execution.

Hi,
Empty lines in the code is just to improve the readability of the code. Its nothing to do with the performance.
