Remove redundant and trailing blanks from file names

Postby TheEmu » Thu Jun 08, 2017 1:57 pm

A minor but, for me, useful addition would be an option to remove redundant blanks, i.e. to replace multiple blanks with a single blank, and to remove any leading and trailing blanks. The first can currently be done by substituting two blanks with a single blank and, if necessary, repeating this until no more file names contain multiple blanks, but this is far from optimal. I can see no easy way with the current version of BRU to automatically remove leading and trailing blanks and although rare a single trailing blank can be hard to spot and remove manually.

Cool, I never realized that was there (or maybe it wasn't in 2.7.1.2, as I only just upgraded).
