looking for script - strip out all # comments
Hey, you scripters....

Anybody got a simple script I can use, sorta like:

$ strip_comments /etc/rc.d/rc.modules

and have the output just show all lines that don't have # in the first column?
This is no emergency or anything.

Thanks if you do and can post it...

I just haven't gotten around to writing any scripts yet.

grep -v "^#"

Pipe anything you want to that :)

If the comment is NOT the first character,
Like # here for instance

cat file | sed 's/#.*//' | grep .
