Smarty/PHP remove all linebreaks before displaying document

Given a Smarty template, we would like to remove all linebreaks before displaying the document the user.

The suggested solution should be performant if possible.
1 Solution
you can write a php function to remove all the line breaks from a string.. then register this function as a smarty output filter... now smarty will pass all the template outputs through this particular function before sending it to end user.....  bingo.... you get what you need.... see the attached code..
function filterCarriageReturn($tpl_output, &$smarty)
    $tpl_output = str_replace(chr(10), " ", $tpl_output);     //remove carriage returns
	$tpl_output = str_replace(chr(13)," ", $tpl_output);
    return $tpl_output;

// register the outputfilter
