in reply to [solved] Replace ".." with ","

"." needs to be escaped in regular expressions. Use s/\.{2}/,/g or s/[.]{2}/,/g. The former uses an escaped ".", the latter a character class containing only the "."

Alexander

Updated: First variant should be s/\.{2}/,/g, not s/\.{2}//,/g. Thanks to AnomalousMonk for spotting this bug.
