Subject [jira] [Commented] (LANG-1108) Function to replace multiple whitespaces by a character and trim
Date Wed, 22 Apr 2015 11:22:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-1108?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14506847#comment-14506847

Bruno P. Kinoshita commented on LANG-1108:
------------------------------------------

Great idea. I was looking for something similar and thinking whether that would make sense
in \[text\], but I think it makes sense to add it to \[lang\]. My original wish for a function
came from this "[TrimAllExcessSpaces algorithm|https://algorithmia.com/algorithms/WebPredict/TrimAllExcessSpaces]"
from Algorithmia. Unfortunately I'm terrible with names, and have no good suggestion for it.

> In form applications where user can input data its very often not wished to have successive
whitespace characters.
> A function that will replace multiple whitespace characters with a single space (or passed
string/character) would be a nice feature since I myself repeat this method in many applications.
> Something like a shortcut for:
>     value.replace("\\s+", " ").trim()
