Subject Re: regular expression help+tokens instead of words
Date Tue, 02 Aug 2005 14:32:27 GMT
Hi,

You could try to replace the blank character by ' myPrefix' (not the
blank before myPrefix).

 <propertyregex property="regexp.name"
               input="Foo Bar Blah Blah"
               regexp=" "
               replace=" myPrefix"
               global="true"
               casesensitive="false" />
