I've been searching the documentation for way to do regular expression
substitition of groups.
For example: Given the regex;
"My[ ]+name[ ]+is[ ]+($NAME)[.]+
I[ ]+live[ ]+at[ ]+($ADDRESS)[.]+
My[ ]+email[ ]+address[ ]+is[ ]+($EMAIL)"
I search some string for a match, find this:
"My name is $NAME . I live at $ADDRESS.
I am an acountant. My email address is $EMAIL"
and want to substitute
"Bob Smith" for $NAME
"1600 Pensylvania Ave." for $ADDRESS
"bob_at_[hidden]" for $EMAIL.
I have not been able to find a method that will do this for me.
