    Hi,

    All you regexp/sub experts I need some help.

    I have a file that contains a filename in quoted text i.e. “fred.csv”. When I try and open this in my Tcl script it complains because Tcl is trying to open “”fred.csv””.

                           set ofh [open $fname w]

    So how do I remove the double quotes so I get fred rather than “fred”?

    Thanks

    Garry

      Code:

      regsub -all — “”” $data “”

      Or (as Charlie would point out except I beat him to the punch, nyah!)

      you could use

         string map {{“} {}} $filenamestring

      –kk

      Whups, Mr. Abbot*:

      regsub -all {“} $data {} data

      (or wherever you decide to put the result.)

      Thanks for those.

      I spent quite a while trying to do these in both regsub and string map without success so I though it best to shout help.

      This is what I like about the Cloverleaf community.

      Thanks again.

      I was totally trying to beat Charlie to it, too, but I could not for the life of me figure out how to make it work with string map.  😯 Nested bracers! Never would have thought of that.

      Maybe a prettier way with regsub could be like this:

      Code:

      regsub -all {”} $data {} data
