Previously a button script was provided to clean generic file names and as an example has the following to replace _ with nothing.
tmp = tmp.replace(/_/gm, '');
I want to know if there are multiple characters in succession, what do we use to replace it with a single occurence.
e.g. If I want to replace multiple spaces with a single space, how do I achieve it in the following ? (e.g. three spaces are replaced with one in example below but it will not work with lesser or more spaces)
tmp = tmp.replace(/\ \ \ /gm, '\ ');
Same with dot. If I have three dots, I can do following to replace it with one dot. But if the number of dots varies and I want one dot for more than one dots in succession, how do I achieve it ?
tmp = tmp.replace(/\.\.\./gm, '\.');
