Snippet: Compress source

I´ve found this function and put it as a TBS method
to compress source (with Render false) and put
all output in a single line html.

I hope it can be useful to someone.

function compressBuffer($b)
    $b = str_replace(array("\r\n", "\r", "\n", "\t"), ' ', $b);
    $b = ereg_replace(" {2,}", ' ',$b);
    $b = str_replace("> <", "><", $b);
    $b = str_replace(" &nbsp;", "&nbsp;", $b);
    $b = str_replace("&nbsp; ", "&nbsp;", $b);
    return $b;

Re: Snippet: Compress source

Does that speed up processing? Als, changing > < into >< changes the source. Isn't str_replace faster if you use arrays as input and replace?

Did you time this on anything?
