Table Search and Replace

In the standard library there exist two nodes which perform a search and replace of values among the elements in Tables. Of the two nodes, one operates on single Table while the other operates on multiple Tables.

In the configuration of the nodes one has to specify the columns in the Tables which will be regarded during the execution of the node. At the moment the node is restricted to string and unicode columns.

For string and unicode columns the search and replace expressions may be regular expressions. Here, it is possible to use ()-grouping in the search expression to reuse the match of the expression within the parentheses in the replacement expression. In the regular expression for the replacement use \1 (or higher numbers) to insert matches.

As an example let’s say that you have an input table with a column containing the strings x, y, and z. If you enter the search expression (.*) and the replacement expression \1_new the output will be the strings x_new, y_new, and z_new.
