|BOMSTRIP(1)||General Commands Manual||BOMSTRIP(1)|
bomstriputility reads UTF-8 data from its standard input and copies it to its standard output, stripping the BOM (byte-order mark) from the beginning of the text if it is present. There are no command-line options and no parameters.
bomstrip-files utility removes the
UTF-8 BOM from the specified files, saving each file's original contents
with a .bom extension. It uses the
bomstrip utility, trying to execute it as
bomstrip”; if the
bomstrip utility is installed under another name, or
if a more complex command is desired, it may be supplied in the
BOMSTRIP environment variable.
EXAMPLES¶Strip the BOM, if present, from a text file:
bomstrip < bom.txt > nobom.txt
Strip the BOM, if present, from all text files, backing them up with a .bom extension:
Use the OCAML implementation of
env BOMSTRIP='ocaml bomstrip.ocaml' bomstrip-files *.txt
bomstriputility (in many languages) was written by Mechiel Lukkien, with implementations in various languages sent to him by others, including Andreas Gohr, Andrew Gerrand, Berteun Damman, Matthijs Bomhoff, Peter Pentchev, and Ruben Smelik. The
bomstrip-filesutility and this manual page were written by Peter Pentchev in the hope that they reflect the behavior of all the
bomstripimplementations in all languages.
