Publisher description for Scour

Scour program icon

Scour is an open-source Python script that will Clean SVG files, removing a lot of 'cruft' that certain tools or authors embed into their documents. The goal of scour is to provide an identically rendered image (i.e. a scoured document should have no discernable visible differences from the original file). WARNING: Scour is intended to be run on files that have been edited in Vector Graphics editors such as Inkscape or Adobe Illustrator. Scour attempts to optimize the file, and as result, it will change the file's structure and (possibly) its semantics. If you have hand-edited your SVG files, you will probably not be happy with the output of Scour. NEVER USE SCOUR TO OVERWRITE YOUR ORIGINAL FILE! Scour performs many operations automatically. In addition to these automatic operations, scour also provides some configurable options: --disable-embed-rastersPrevents conversion of external rasters to embedded base-64 data --disable-group-collapsingPrevents collapsing of group elements --disable-simplify-colorsPrevents conversion of colors to #RRGGBB format --disable-style-to-xmlPrevents conversion of style properties into XML attributes --enable-id-strippingRemoves unreferenced id attributes --keep-editor-dataKeeps all Inkscape/Sodipodi/Adobe elements, attrs (New in 0.15) --set-precision NSets the number of significant digits that scour will keep (defaults to 5)
