The function returns , e.g.:

The getAssessmentPeriodLabelValues() function returns a list of assessment period LabelValueBeans

I wanted to leave the and replace the text before and after these characters

Hello,


Is there how to find and replace a certain type of strings using regular expressions? There’s quite a number of standard strings in the files I’m translating at the moment. These strings are based on the following structure:

The function returns , e.g.:

The getAssessmentPeriodLabelValues() function returns a list of assessment period LabelValueBeans

I wanted to leave the and replace the text before and after these characters

I used the following search and replace arguments:

Find what: The\s& function\sreturns
Replace with: \s&, where & stands for

Which, naturally, resulted in just that – ampersands instead of the characters I’d like to remain there.

Is it actually possible to find and replace in Transit in sed or awk style, or functionally similar?


Cheers
