     inline-detox — clean up filenames (stream-based)


     inline-detox [-hnLrv] [-s -sequence] [-f -configfile] file ...


     The inline-detox utility can remove spaces and other such annoyances from streams.  It'll
     also translate or cleanup Latin-1 (ISO 8859-1) characters encoded in 8-bit ASCII, Unicode
     characters encoded in UTF-8, and CGI escaped characters.  Basically it's detox, but does not
     operate on files.

     inline-detox is driven by a configurable series of filters, called a sequence.  Sequences
     are covered in more detail in detoxrc(5) and are discoverable with the -L option.  Some
     examples of default sequences are iso8859_1 and utf_8.

     The main options:

     -f configfile
                 Use configfile instead of the default configuration files for loading
                 translation sequences.  No other config file will be parsed.

     -h --help   Display helpful information.

     -L          List the currently available sequences.  When paired with -v this option shows
                 what filters are used in each sequence and any properties applied to the

     -r          Recurse into subdirectories.

     -s sequence
                 Use sequence instead of default.

     -v          Be verbose about which files are being renamed.

     -V          Show the current version of inline-detox.

   Deprecated Options
     Deprecated Options are options that were available in earlier versions of inline-detox but
     have lost their meaning and are being phased out.

                 Removes _ and - after .'s in filenames.  This was first provided in the 0.9
                 series of inline-detox.  After the introduction of sequences, it lost its
                 meaning, as you could now determine the properties of wipeup through a
                 particular sequence's configuration.  It presently forces all instances of the
                 wipeup filter to use remove trailing, regardless of what's actually in the
                 config files.


     detoxrc        The system-wide detoxrc file.
     ~/.detoxrc     A user's personal detoxrc.  Normally it extends the system-wide detoxrc,
                    unless -f has been specified, in which case, it is ignored.
     iso8859_1.tbl  The default ISO 8859-1 translation table.
     unicode.tbl    The default Unicode (UTF-8) translation table.


     echo Foo Bar | inline-detox -s iso8859_1 -v
                 Will run the sequence iso8859_1 listing any changes and returning the result to


     detox(1), detoxrc(5), detox.tbl(5).


     detox was originally designed to clean up files that I had received from friends which had
     been created using other operating systems.  It's trivial to create a filename with spaces,
     parenthesis, brackets, and ampersands under some operating systems.  These have special
     meaning within FreeBSD and Linux, and cause problems when you go to access them.  I created
     inline-detox to clean up these files.

     Long options don't work under Solaris or Darwin.

     An error in the config file will cause a segfault as it's going to print the offending word
     within the config file.
