Whitespace is Evil

I have this recurring nightmare of PHP apps that don’t trim whitespace when entering info. As a habitual copy and paster, it would be nice if some programmers could tend to my laziness and reluctance to type. Yes, Tony, I’m talking about you. Ever hear of the trim() function? Yea, it’s the Brazilian wax of PHP you inconsiderate bastard.

$text = "some text with extra spaces ";
$trimmed = trim($text);
echo $trimmed;
