Description

Replace in string is a simple search and replace. It also supports regular expressions and group references. group references are picked up in the replace by string as $n where n is the number of the group.

Example

You could parse out sections of a string as follows

regex = ^([0-9]{4})([0-9]{7})$

replace with = $2

This will replace any 11 digit numbers with the last 7 digits.
