I have a string like
foobar1, foobaz2, barbar23, nobar100 I want only
foobar, foobaz, barbar, nobar and ignoring the number part.
If you want to strip out things that are digits, a regex can do that for you:
var s = "foobar1"; s = s.replace(/\d/g, ""); alert(s); // "foobar"
\d is the regex class for "digit". We're replacing them with nothing.)
Note that as given, it will remove any digit anywhere in the string.
