Ever compress a file for the web by replacing all newline characters with nothing so it makes one nice big blob?
It is a great idea, however what about when you want to edit that file? ...Serious pain in the butt.
I ran into this today in that my only copy of a CSS file was "compressed" with no newlines.
I whipped this up and it converted back into nice human readable CSS :-)
It could be nicer, but it does the job.
