_delimit


Description:

public unowned string _delimit (string delimiters, char new_delimiter)

Converts any delimiter characters in string to new_delimiter.

Any characters in string which are found in delimiters are changed to the new_delimiter character. Modifies string in place, and returns string itself, not a copy. The return value is to allow nesting such as

  g_ascii_strup (g_strdelimit (str, "abc", '?'))

Example: Replace any delimiter characters with another one (inline):

public static int main (string[] args) {
string str1 = "ABCDEFG";
unowned string str2 = str1._delimit ("ADEG", 'x');

// Output:
// ``xBCxxFx``
// ``xBCxxFx``
print ("%s\n", str1);
print ("%s\n", str2);
return 0;
}
