no_comments strips comments from various file types
Easy way to strip comments from various file types.
Comment stripping utility. Handles both inline comments and block comments. Strips C/C++ comments by default (both inline and block).
- cat source_code_file | no_comments > out
- strip only inline comments / block comments
- configurable delimiters
- strip only comments at the beggining of the line
- preserve empty lines which contained comments before
- easy_install no_comments or pip install no_comments
- run no_comments –help
This utility is DUMB - as it’s not language specific it doesn’t understand the syntax (It will remove comments in strings, ignore nested comments or so).
