in reply to Clipboard transform keys

This one searches the clipboard text for blank columns, and removes them if there are two or more adjacent. I use it to tidy up captured screens, especially those that have been stitched together.
@rem = '--*-Perl-*-- @echo off perl -x -S "%~dpnx0" %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9 goto endofperl @rem '; #!perl #line 8 use strict; use warnings; use Win32::Clipboard; use Text::Orientation; my $CLIP = Win32::Clipboard(); my $rot = Text::Orientation->new( TEXT => $CLIP->GetText ); $_ = $rot->transpose(); s|\x0d\x0a|\x0a|g; s/\n( +)\n +\n/\n$1\n/g while /\n( +)\n +\n/; $rot = Text::Orientation->new( TEXT => $_ ); $CLIP->Set( $rot->transpose() ); __END__ :endofperl
