I was used to replace strings by a hardcoded string (or just "" to remove something) or a variable. But sometimes this was not enough, so I started complex treatments of the strings and substrings… often only to get headaches and bugs.
Yesterday, I wanted to clean an HTML string and reuse the value of an attribute to inject it in the new string. I was really not happy at all with the idea of doing the same heavy treatments as in previous works, so I opened the Flex Language Reference and read… This is usually a good thing … to read something totally. And there, I just found the Scrat the Saber-Toothed Squirrel ’s acorn… or I just felt like Scrat catching its treasure ;).
