Hi all,

I need to remove all \n from a string so that its output on one line. I can do this using the following

however, to improve the code and its portability i was wondering how I could use unicode to do this.

Any ideas.

There is a list of possible line-end characters in the Pattern class; look for "line terminators." You can create a regular expression to match them.

That might be one way to solve your problem.
I agree. Here's the link:
