Remove Spaces

Spaces from text can be removed in number of ways. I will discuss about 2 ways to remove spaces.

Remove Spaces Using Python

  • Replace all white spaces by single space. Here is how you can do it...
import re
text = "this is a             test to   remove the multiple white spaces"
text = re.sub(r'[ ]+',' ',text)
 
  • Remove leading space in a line
import re
text = " this is a             test to   remove the multiple white spaces"
text = re.sub(r'^[ ]+',' ',text)
 

Remove white Spaces Using Sed in Bash and Zsh

  • Replace all white spaces by single space
echo"this is   test message
 Another sentence with lot of        spaces" | sed 's/[ ]\+/ /g'
 
  • Remove leading space
echo" Another sentence with lot of        spaces" | sed 's/^[ ]\+//g'
