This question may be asked a lot but I can't find much useful info about my problem... What I want to do is parse a string and substitute say the "'" out of the string with say "`" how would I go about doing this??? I think VB it was something like
parseString(String, "'", "`");
I looked at the documentation for parse(java.lang.String, parameter list) I'm just not sure what the hell is a parameter list..!?!?!?!
If someone can show me how to simply parse a string in java that would be great!!! Hehehe!
Thanks in Advance!
