bomstrip, bomstrip-files — strip the BOM sequence from UTF-8 files


bomstrip-files file ...


The bomstrip utility reads UTF-8 data from its standard input and copies it to its standard
output, stripping the BOM (byte-order mark) from the beginning of the text if it is present.
There are no command-line options and no parameters.

The bomstrip-files utility removes the UTF-8 BOM from the specified files, saving each
file's original contents with a .bom extension. It uses the bomstrip utility, trying to
execute it as “bomstrip”; if the bomstrip utility is installed under another name, or if a
more complex command is desired, it may be supplied in the BOMSTRIP environment variable.


Strip the BOM, if present, from a text file:

bomstrip < bom.txt > nobom.txt

Strip the BOM, if present, from all text files, backing them up with a .bom extension:

bomstrip-files *.txt

Use the OCAML implementation of bomstrip:

env BOMSTRIP='ocaml bomstrip.ocaml' bomstrip-files *.txt

Use bomstrip online using onworks.net services
