I have a following line :
|A|B|C|D|100|E|GEN|smsplus|11|11|11| and I want to remove the first and last occurrence of
I have to check first if the
| is available at
first and last
I am sure that this will bring me some down votes but really don't know how to go about.
I also have to check for the following :
A|B|C|D|100|E|GEN|smsplus|11|11|11| and |A|B|C|D|100|E|GEN|smsplus|11|11|11 and there is no
|| that is why I did not want to give any explanation for the same.
thanks for your valuable time.
Your comments lead me to believe that you want to do this:
String result = subject.replaceAll("^\\||\\|$", "");
This will change each of the following strings:
|A|B|C| |A|B|C A|B|C| A|B|C
to the same string
