str_remove

Percentile

Remove matched patterns in a string.

Alias for str_replace(string, pattern, "").

Usage
str_remove(string, pattern)

str_remove_all(string, pattern)

Arguments
string

Input vector. Either a character vector, or something coercible to one.

pattern

Pattern to look for.

The default interpretation is a regular expression, as described in stringi::stringi-search-regex. Control options with regex().

Match a fixed string (i.e. by comparing only bytes), using fixed(). This is fast, but approximate. Generally, for matching human text, you'll want coll() which respects character matching rules for the specified locale.

Match character, word, line and sentence boundaries with boundary(). An empty pattern, "", is equivalent to boundary("character").

Value

A character vector.
