GIT-STRIPSPACE(1)                 Git Manual                 GIT-STRIPSPACE(1)



NAME
       git-stripspace - Remove unnecessary whitespace

SYNOPSIS
       git stripspace [-s | --strip-comments] < input


DESCRIPTION
       Clean the input in the manner used by git for text such as commit messages, notes, tags and branch
       descriptions.

       With no arguments, this will:

       ?   remove trailing whitespace from all lines

       ?   collapse multiple consecutive empty lines into one empty line

       ?   remove empty lines from the beginning and end of the input

       ?   add a missing \n to the last line if necessary.

       In the case where the input consists entirely of whitespace characters, no output will be produced.

       NOTE: This is intended for cleaning metadata, prefer the --whitespace=fix mode of git-apply(1) for correcting
       whitespace of patches or files in the repository.

OPTIONS
       -s, --strip-comments
           Skip and remove all lines starting with #.

EXAMPLES
       Given the following noisy input with $ indicating the end of a line:

           |A brief introduction   $
           |   $
           |$
           |A new paragraph$
           |# with a commented-out line    $
           |explaining lots of stuff.$
           |$
           |# An old paragraph, also commented-out. $
           |      $
           |The end.$
           |  $


       Use git stripspace with no arguments to obtain:

           |A brief introduction$
           |$
           |A new paragraph$
           |# with a commented-out line$
           |explaining lots of stuff.$
           |$
           |# An old paragraph, also commented-out.$
           |$
           |The end.$


       Use git stripspace --strip-comments to obtain:

           |A brief introduction$
           |$
           |A new paragraph$
           |explaining lots of stuff.$
           |$
           |The end.$
