Code Tweaks

I’m working with some CSV text data today. Tweets actually. People seem to think it’s a good idea to put hard returns into their tweets, which makes my life difficult when importing then from text files into something useful like COSMOS :-)

Lines usually start with a " character and this snippet will remove any lines that do not, and bring them all onto one line…making a well formatted row in the CSV file and keeping COSMOS (and me) happy.

\r^(?!\")

Find and replace (with single space character) using grep in TextWrangler. Job done.
