Synopsis

                  REReplaceNoCase(string, regex, substring [, scope])

Returns string with regex replaced by substring for the specified scope. regex can be any valid ColdFusion regular expression. scope may be set as either One or All, where One results in the replacement of the first occurrence of the regular expression, and All results in the replacement of all occurrences of the regular expression. The default scope is One. REReplaceNoCase( ) performs a case-insensitive search. The following example uses the REReplaceNoCase( ) function to remove doubled words from a string:

<cfset MyString = "I want to go to to the park.">
<cfset NewString = ReReplaceNoCase(MyString, "\b([A-Z]+)[ ]+\1", "\1", "All")>
   
<cfoutput>
<b>Original String:</b> #MyString#
<p>
<b>New String:</b> #NewString#
</cfoutput>
