Text::Minify::XS - Simple text minification
```perl use Text::Minify::XS qw/ minify /;
my $out = minify( $in ); ```
None by default.
my $out = minify( $in );
This is a quick-and-dirty text minifier that removes whitespace in a single pass.
It does the following:
- removes leading whitespace (indentation),
- removes trailing whitespace,
- removes multiple newlines,
- and changes carriage returns to newlines.
It does not recognise any form of markup, comments or text quoting. Nor does it remove extra whitespace in the middle of the line.
Support for older Perl versions
This module requires Perl v5.9.3 or newer.
Pull requests to support older versions of Perl are welcome. See "SOURCE".
Malformed UTF-8 characters may be be mangled or omitted from the output. In extreme cases it may throw an exception in order to avoid memory overflows. You should ensure that the input string is properly encoded as UTF-8.
There are many string trimming and specialised whitespace/comment-removal modules on CPAN. Some of them are:
This list does not include specialised template filters or plugins to web frameworks.
