purge comment and blank line

Postby Mehdi shri » Wed Feb 08, 2012 9:16 pm

Dear friends.
How I can delete comment and blank line from a source at a one time? (My means: Not to type D in each line and then press enter)

write an edit macro...
or use the sequence
exclude all
find all <what identifies a blank line >
find all <what identies a comment>
del NX all
cheers
