Subject Re: repalce function in Flowscript ?
Date Mon, 08 May 2006 13:32:36 GMT
I'm guessing that you're running into issues with the replace(char, char)
method from java.lang.String.

Have you tried doing this in native JavaScript (e.g., filters.replace(/a/g,
'b')) ?

Hmmm... "replace" is a JavaScript function, not a Java one, hence I
cannot understand how the string differences apply :(

Anyway, I tried:
var jfilters= new;
var re= new"/a/g");
var s= new"b");
jfilters.replace(re, b);

to no avail:
...line 249: Cannot convert /a/g to java.lang.Character
