string_replace_all

Returns a copy of a string with all instances of a given substring replaced with a new substring.

Syntax:

string_replace_all(str, substr, newstr);


Argument Description
str The string to be copied.
substr The substring within the string to be replaced in all instances.
newstr The new substring to replace the previous one(s).


Returns: String


Description

You can use this function to parse a string looking for specific parts, which can then be replaced by the new string that you have specified in all places that they occur.


Example:

str1 = 'Hexxo Worxd';
str2 = string_replace_all(str1, 'x', 'l');

This will set str2 to str1, but with its instances of 'x' replaced with 'l', resulting in str2 being 'Hello World'.
