Linux / UNIX View Only Configuration File Directives ( Uncommented Lines of a Config File )

Posted on in Categories , , last updated May 3, 2017

Most Linux and UNIX-like system configuration files are documented using comments, but some time I just need to see line of configuration text in a config file. How can I view just the uncommented configuration file directives from squid.conf or httpd.conf file? How can I strip out comments and blank lines on a Linux or Unix-like systems?
