Subject: [R] yet another regular expression
I have managed, with the help of glob2rx() to get two parts of a text
manipulation working. I have successfully gotten rid of the first and
second bits, but I have hit the wall trying to get rid of the last bit.
"\"Delete this\":value1,\"Delete this too\":value2},Delete last bit"
sub("\"Delete this too\":","",
This gives me:
 "value1,value2},Delete last bit"
and glob2rx("},*") just won't get rid of the last bit. I throw myself upon
the mercy of the regular expression gurus.
