CharDetector

What

This tool helps find whether a file contains ASCII control characters, print location info if true.

Why

It's annoying while working with sublime search. If a file somehow contains a ASCII control characters, it'll be treated as "binary" and won't show the result preview. And this kind of "binary" files tweaks the behavior of text editor.

So I'd like to find these files and get rid of these control characters very much.

Ref: ASCII table , ascii codes

Roadmap

Installation(WIP)

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'char_detector'

And then execute:

bundle install

Or install it yourself as:

gem install char_detector

Usage

demo on detecting in single file

bin/char_detector -f spec/samples/sample0.txt
bin/char_detector -f spec/samples/sample1-newline.txt
bin/char_detector -f spec/samples/sample2.txt
bin/char_detector -f spec/samples/sample3.txt
bin/char_detector -f spec/samples/sample4.txt
bin/char_detector -f spec/samples/sample5.txt

demo on detecting in file directory and file pattern

# parallel is GNU parallel to speed up the scanning process
# macos: https://formulae.brew.sh/formula/parallel

# with pattern
parallel --progress --timeout 50 --retries 3 "bin/char_detector -f {}" ::: $(find spec/samples -name \*.txt)
parallel --progress --timeout 50 --retries 3 "bin/char_detector -f {}" ::: $(find spec/samples -name \*.md)
parallel --progress --timeout 50 --retries 3 "bin/char_detector -f {}" ::: $(find spec/samples -name \*.rb)

# for all files in directory
# may have unexpected errors :(
parallel --progress --timeout 50 --retries 3 "bin/char_detector -f {}" ::: $(find spec/samples -type f)
# same as
find spec/samples -type f | parallel --progress --timeout 50 --retries 3 "bin/char_detector -f {}"
# same as
find spec/samples -type f | xargs -I {} bin/char_detector -f {} # this one is slow, so GNU parallel is recommended :D

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake spec to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
