UNSPACE version 0.05 by Pieter Suurmond, april 13, 2008.
A C-program that reads a directory recursively, reading all file- and
directory-entries, and --if necessary-- renames them:
- Translating TABs, newlines, carriage returns, formfeeds, etc. to spaces.
- Removing leading and trailing whitespace, as well as multiple spaces inside.
- Substituting space characters by underscores.
- Substituting "_-_" by just "-".
I use it for my .WAV- and .AIFF-collection of ripped audio CD's.
Compile on the commandline with for example:
gcc -O2 -Wall -o UNSPACE UNSPACE.c
To run the executable, supply one pathname of a directory as argument, without
any trailing slashes. For example, to unspace the current directory, type:
Since the operation is not undoable, it may be wise to log all renamings to a
textfile, for example:
./UNSPACE /media/teradisk3 >>log.txt
