Anybody know of a function that can remove (normalize) a string by
remove all beginning and ending whitespace as well as replace all
repeated spaces with a single space.  A bonus would be to remove tabs
and newlines chars as well, but that is not so important.

Before:   "  This is         what it    should        look like. "
After:       "This is what it should look like."

Use Trim from sysutils and then DelSpace1 from strutils.


It might be a good idea to look at


Just so you know what is in store...
