String Search and Replace

 / Published in: ActionScript

Provides a quick and simple "find this string pattern and replace it with this other string pattern" find and replace. Not fancy enough for regular expressions, but untill AS3 is standard this works well for most search/replace needs.

Can be very handy for processing incoming text, whether via user input or from a database or otherwise. For instance, searching for "\r" and replacing with "\n" or "" to control how line breaks flow.

  1. myString.split("foo").join("bar");

If I'm correct, this works in JavaScript too.
