Via npm:

npm install strip-combining-marks

Via Bower:

bower install strip-combining-marks

Via Component:

component install mathiasbynens/strip-combining-marks

In a browser:

<script src="strip-combining-marks.js"></script>

In Narwhal, Node.js, and RingoJS:

var stripCombiningMarks = require('strip-combining-marks');

In Rhino:

load('strip-combining-marks.js');

Using an AMD loader like RequireJS:

require(
  {
    'paths': {
      'strip-combining-marks': 'path/to/strip-combining-marks'
    }
  },
  ['strip-combining-marks'],
  function(stripCombiningMarks) {
    console.log(stripCombiningMarks);
  }
);

API
