       git-stripspace - Remove unnecessary whitespace

       git stripspace [-s | --strip-comments] < input

       Clean the input in the manner used by Git for text such as commit messages, notes, tags
       and branch descriptions.

       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

       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:

	   |A brief introduction$
	   |A new paragraph$
	   |explaining lots of stuff.$
	   |The end.$
