Although designed primarily to strip Javascript comments from web pages and C++ program source files, it can be readily applied to web pages, other languages and more general purposes.

SourceFilter features:

1. creates a new version of the source file, and  
2. keeps a backup of the input file by renaming it - appending the extension .bak to its original file name (so you can retrieve it if you've made a mistake).  
3. can optionally amend the file creation and modification dates of the output file to match the input file date or other requirements.  
4. reduces successive blank lines in the output to a single or small set of blank lines.  
5. provides context sensitive help  
6. it's very low cost

SourceFilter includes comprehensive context sensitive help. To learn more, view further extracts from the SourceFilter help file Here .
