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

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 :)

I've had success with:

egrep -v "^#|^$|^   #|^ *#" httpd.conf

That strips out empty lines, comment lines that have a # in as the first character, coment lines that have a tab and # for the first two characters and comments that begin with multiple spaces followed by the # character.
