mmrm1stspace: First Space Modification Module

Author: Pascal Withopf <>

In rfc3164 the msg begins at the first letter after the tag. It is often the case that this is a unnecessary space. This module removes this first character if it is a space.

Configuration Parameters

Note: parameter names are case-insensitive.

Currently none.


This example receives messages over imtcp and modifies them, before sending them to a file.

module(load=”imtcp”) module(load=”mmrm1stspace”) input(type=”imtcp” port=”13514”) action(type=”mmrm1stspace”) action(type=”omfile” file=”output.log”)
