Note about fixDos vs. whitespace
whitespace is a perl script, and will run on most machines without compiling. (perl-anabled, ofcouse)
fixDos is C source, but has a win32 executable as well. (compiler needed, ofcourse)
This program can already be found here:
It's called fixDos, and you can find it here:
It also includes CR/LF conversion util, as well as a FileName cleanup.
Common errors with DOS conversion type stuff.
It recently got an extra util upgraded: untab.c which essencially does all that whitespace does.
All these utilities have got easy, and well documented command-line parameters, and can automatically recursive directories. and optionally create backup files of changed files.
One great feature of the new untab.c util is that it can detect C "strings" and optionally NOT change any TAB characters within that.
One thing is missing
This program needs some KDE GUI. Perhaps with themes,
transparent background, little anims, and nice sound.
An open, cross-platform journaling program.
A scientific plotting package.
