uniquepath 1.0

Simple utility to remove duplicate and manipulate PATH-like environment variables (e.g. LD_LIBRARY_PATH, MANPATH).

Simple utility to remove duplicate in PATH-like environment variables.

On Unix, it outputs the transformed variable so it can be used like this :

$ PATH=`uniquepath.py PATH`

On Windows, there is a helper .bat script that achieve the same effect (even if it is not as explicit):

C:\uniquepath.bat PATH

The command line also offers ways to append, prepend, and remove path to the variable and it supports wildcard (usefull for remove).
