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

NAME
       git-stripspace -	Remove unnecessary whitespace

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

DESCRIPTION
       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:

       o   remove trailing whitespace from all lines

       o   collapse multiple consecutive empty lines into one empty line

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

       o   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 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 prepended.

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.$
