ygfperson: I just downloaded and ran the program but I think I am using it wrong - what is the usage again? You can PM me if you get the urge...
well here's a program only a coder could love: one that removes comments from source files! Y'know - you downloaded some sourcecode - only to find that not only did the author throw in syntax errors and other obstacles, but he also mined it with about a hundred multiline comments - which, of course make adding your own multiline comments around his impossible...
Description: Removes single-line and multiline comments from sourcecode by creating de-commented copies of the original (preserves the original though)
Usage: Utilizes the drag and drop feature of Windows to process as many files as desired. Can also be run from the command-line in full DOS mode.
- Windows (PC) compatible
- User can opt to create the copies in the programs running directory or in the home directory of the originating file(s).
- Resolves filename conflicts at run-time with an incremental naming system.
- The de-commented copies are named as the original but with a leading "_".
- Easy to use.
- Thoroughly tested and totally accurate.
- Compiled for Windows-based machines only at the time.
- Does not process folders and subfolders just yet
- Single-purpose utility
Believe it or not, I use it quite frequently. One useful application is to go to the Windows Start Menu, Select "Find Files...", and type in the 'named' box: " *.c", "*.cpp", or "*.h"
After it has found all of the files of that type in the hard drive, simply drag them ALL onto the program, selecting the "create in the home directory" option at the prompt. That way, the copies appear in each of the original's directory, making it easy to find the copies you've made.
