Hello to everyone. I have a little problem manipulating a
The initial string is as follows:
What I need to do is retrieve a string does not contain the ' in the beginning and the end. I tried the following unsuccessfully:
line = (line.replace('\'', ' ')).trim();
line = line.substring(0, line.length() - 1);
line = line.replace(' ', '\'');
I obtain the following:
); (spaces are still left behind without the ' after the \).
I do not if it helps but this line will eventually be used in an html document.
Thank you for your help

How about using something like the following (no, I didn't actually
it). It seems like the replacing is just making things overly complicated.
line = line.trim(); line = line.substring(1, line.length() - 1);

I assume you are trying to convert the Java String containing:
into a String containing this:
If so, you could always try substring() between the first occurrence of ' (using indexOf()) and the last occurrence of ' (using lastIndexOf()).
If I've misunderstood, please set the question in context...
