  • That's way too complicated. This is easier:

       public static String subst(String string, String regex, String repl) {
          Pattern pat = Pattern.compile(regex);
          Matcher m = pat.matcher(string);
          return m.replaceAll(repl);
       }

    or even

       public static String subst(String string, String regex, String repl) {
          return Pattern.compile(regex).matcher(string).replaceAll(repl);
       }

    • Or even much better: [sun.com]

         public static String subst(String string, String regex, String repl) {
            return string.replaceAll(regex, repl);
         }

    • Doesn't work if you need the variant in the comments, where you transform the matched expression to generate the replacement.
