    cleanpatch: a script to clean up stealth whitespace added by a patch · 6e019b00
    H. Peter Anvin authored
    This script is a companion to the "cleanfile" script.  This cleans
    up a patch in unified diff format *before* it is applied.  Note that
    the empty lines at the end of file detection *requires* that the diff was
    taken with at least one line of context around each hunk, or bad things
    will happen.
    This script cleans up various classes of stealth whitespace.  In
    particular, it cleans up:
    - Whitespace (spaces or tabs)before newline;
    - DOS line endings (CR before LF);
    - Space before tab (spaces are deleted or converted to tabs);
    - Empty lines at end of file.
