Java's String.replaceAll in fact takes a regular expression. You could remove all newlines with:

s = s.replaceAll("\\n", "");
s = s.replaceAll("\\r", "");

But this will remove all newlines.

Note the double \'s: so that the string that is passed to the regular expression parser is \n.

You can also do this, which is smarter:

s = s.replaceAll("\\s{2,}", " ");

This would remove all sequences of 2 or more whitespaces, replacing them with a single space. Since newlines are also whitespaces, it should do the trick for you.


Try this code:

s = s.replaceAll( "PACKAGE\\s*NFY", "PACKAGE NFY" );

Have you tried a replace function? Something in the lines of:

youString.Replace("\r", "")

string = string.replace(/\s{2,}/g, ' ');
