git-stripspace - Remove unnecessary whitespace


git stripspace [-s | --strip-comments]
git stripspace [-c | --comment-lines]


Read text, such as commit messages, notes, tags and branch descriptions, from the standard
input and clean it in the manner used by Git.

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

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.


-s, --strip-comments
Skip and remove all lines starting with comment character (default #).

-c, --comment-lines
Prepend comment character and blank to each line. Lines will automatically be
terminated with a newline. On empty lines, only the comment character will be


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:
