VB .NET coder required to write a routine to replace certain words in a chunk of text... only IF they're not in a hyperlink or e-mail address.
This will be used to cut certain words from forum posts, unless they're part of a link or e-mail address.
For example, the word "free" may be replaced with "xxxx". However if the word "free" is in an e-mail address or link, it should just be IGNORED.
You need to write a function to handle this, with inward "Text", "Find" and "Replace" parameters, returning a string. You will probably want to use regular expressions for this.
I can provide URL and e-mail regular expressions if required.
This is a low budget bid request. Nothing too wild please. Winner will be chosen based on price and rating.
Make your bids... and happy bidding! :)
