Combine CSS files

I would like to create a simple program for this purpose: I wish to combine css files.
A usual css file is like that.
body { background-color: #000;
font-size: 62.5%;
margin: 0;
padding: 0; }

#main p.first {
margin-bottom: 0;

a:link img, a:visited img {
border: none;

li.clearFloat {
clear: both;


- A css file is pure text.
- Words in pink color, are rules and they customize web pages.
- Data inside the braces, are explaining how a web page is customized. As you see, characteristics that are applied are colors, sizes, etc.

It happens that i need to include many rules from different files to one. But, i don't want to have same rules from 4 or 5 files repeated like that

li.clearFloat {clear: both;}

.rowWrap {width: 100%;}

li.clearFloat {clear: both;}

.rowWrap {
width: 100%;

li.clearFloat {
clear: both;

What i thought it could be my goal using a programming language is to create a program that is going to:

1. read 1 whole css file,
2. then start reading a second css file until it reaches the character ' } ' ,
3. if what reads in the second file until the ' } ' character, already exists in the first file, then it should delete it, else, it should leave it as is,
4. continue reading from last ' } ' to next ' } ' and repeating the 3. procedure.

I would appreciate it if you could point me to a web site or a programming language.
Thank you

Re: Combine CSS files

Any programming language would do though I recommend using python
There are 10 types of people in the world, those who get this, those who don't, and those who thought this was binary.
