no_comments is a 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
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).
Here are some key features of "no_comments":
· strip only inline comments / block comments
· configurable delimiters
· strip only comments at the beggining of the line
· preserve empty lines which contained comments before
