Golang : Remove dashes(or any character) from string

Problem :

You have a string with dashes in between and you want to remove all the dashes. How to do that?

Solution :

Use strings.Replace() function to remove the dashes(or any character). See http://golang.org/pkg/strings/#Replace on how to configure the parameter.

 package main

 import (

 func main() {

 strWithDashes := "0-201-53377-4"

 // remove all dashes
 // -1 means, all occurrences

 noDashes := strings.Replace(strWithDashes, "-", "", -1)

 fmt.Println("Before : ", strWithDashes)
 fmt.Println("After : ", noDashes)


Output :

Before : 0-201-53377-4

After : 0201533774
