Ruby white space strip command line applicationยถ

This program uses Ruby Power to strip whitespace from files, and the accompanying documentation provided aims at being an easy to follow tutorial on all things Ruby.

This program runs on the command line and accepts a single parameter, a folder path name.

It checks this folder recursively through all sub folders and files for leading and trailing whitespace.

It removes all the excess leading and trailing whitespace and copies the folder contents to this projects output directory.

So far it has been checked against these file formats:

  • *.c
  • *.xml
  • *.xsl
  • *.txt
  • *.php
  • *.html
  • *.py
  • *.css
  • *.rb

Simply run:

$ ruby ruby-strip.rb -h
Usage: ruby-strip.rb [options]

Specific options:
    -p, --path path                  Directory or path relative to this
                                     directory to check for excess whitespace.
        --delay N                    Delay N seconds before executing
    -t, --time [TIME]                Begin execution at given time

Common options:
    -h, --help                       Show this message
        --version                    Show version

This should copy the folder to the output directory.
