Tsv column trimmer tool What is a tsv column trimmer?
This browser utility trims columns in tab-separated data (abbreviated as TSV). Trimming is an operation that removes excessive leading and trailing whitespaces from the data. Removing leading whitespaces is called left-trimming and removing trailing whitespaces is called right-trimming. You can select if you want to do both operations at the same time, or just one of them at a time by simply checking on unchecking the appropriate options. By default, this utility removes whitespaces from both ends of all input columns, but you can specify one or more columns that need to be cleaned up. To do this, simply list the column numbers, separated by a comma in the options. For example, "1, 2, 3" will trim columns one, two, and three. You can also specify them as a range. For example, "1-3" will also trim columns one, two, and three. Simple and easy!

Countries and Their Capitals
