Description : SVG scrubber and optimizer
Scour is a Python module that aggressively cleans SVG files, removing a lot of
unnecessary information that certain tools or authors embed into their
documents. The goal of scour is to provide an identically rendered image
(i.e. a scoured document should have no discernable visible differences from
the original file) while minimizing the file size.
WARNING: Scour is intended to be run on files that have been edited in Vector
Graphics editors such as Inkscape or Adobe Illustrator. Scour attempts to
optimize the file, and as result, it will change the file's structure and
(possibly) its semantics. If you have hand-edited your SVG files, you will
probably not be happy with the output of Scour.
Never use scour to overwrite your original file!
