I’m trying to inject some code into a file by using replace. The problem is if the target code contains any of the
replace() function’s special character sequences, namely
$$, it will do something different than what I expect, which is to just copy the characters exactly as they are.
you would think this would result in
$$ but it actually returns
Is there a way to disable this functionality so that it maintains the
$$ like i want?
No idea why the
$$ wasn’t working, I too am wondered.
But you can get the result by using the callback function.
'replaceme'.replace('replaceme', () => '$$');
