SVGMin a small command-line utility to reduce SVG size by removing redundant information.

Many illustration programs can export the drawing to the SVG format. However, the SVG output is often sprinkled with a lot of extra stuff, mostly so that the file can be read back without a loss of information. This is however not good if the SVG output is the final file targeted for deployment, e.g. for a web site or as a scalable theme in a mobile platforms. The extra baggage in the contents which has no effect on the rendering should be removed to reduce both the download size and the (run-time) parsing time.
