    Question Removing whitespace from a string

    Hi All,
    Can anyone please tell me how to remove the white space in between a string or can anyone tell me how to write a string into a file with ignoring the white spaces.
    Thanks & Regards,
    Bala

    If you just want to remove the beginning and ending whitespace, you can use the built in function trim(), e.g. " abcd ".trim() is "abcd"
    If you want to remove it everywhere, you can use the replaceAll() method with the whitespace class as the parameter, e.g. " abcd ".replaceAll("\\W","").

    Hope this helps.
