I want to grep lines that not commented from a file, Someone said that I can
$sed -e '/^[[:space:]]*#/d;/^[[:space:]]*$/d' file.conf

but I think it's too long, I have use
$egrep -v '^#' file.conf

but it containt so many blank lines. Is there any suggest what should I use ?
Maybe like combining egrep with other script.. As simple as possible :)
