in reply to Control characters

I was going to suggest using regular expressions and the s/// command but the control characters make it rather tricky, since the ^ anchors a search at the beginning of a string. Quick and dirty, but maybe something like this?

s/(.)?^O/\1/g; s/(.)?^N/\1/g;

    s/(.)?^O/\1/g; s/(.)?^N/\1/g;
    But what do these statements really do?
    >perl -wMstrict -le "for my $str (@ARGV) { printf q{%s -> }, $str; $str =~ s/(.)?^O/\1/g; $str =~ s/(.)?^N/\1/g; print $str; } " OhNoOhNo NotOnNotOn \1 better written as $1 at -e line 1. \1 better written as $1 at -e line 1. Use of uninitialized value $1 in substitution iterator at -e line 1. OhNoOhNo -> hNoOhNo Use of uninitialized value $1 in substitution iterator at -e line 1. NotOnNotOn -> otOnNotOn
