no_comments strips comments from various file types

Project description

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).
