small test to reproduce it is

printf '%s\n\n' '* * * * * abc' | mnc

ticket title needs an update

Also, if I'm reading this correctly in the section INPUT FILES, that '/' is non-POSIX.

https://www.man7.org/linux/man-pages/man1/crontab.1p.html

* and elements are fine, no /

I think the error is here: https://pkg.go.dev/strings#TrimSpace

It trims whitespace, including newlines.

You want to just separate the fields by (whitespace), and then trim leading/trailing whitespace
