tMap Expression - Replace Chr(10), Chr(13), Chr(9) With Spaces

Hello everyone,

 

I had to replace hidden characters in  field sourced from MSSQL, though I've already found a working solution I'm curious about something in it.

 

Issue: "\n" in data ending the line in the target file.

Solution: row1.field.replaceAll("\r\n"," ").replaceAll("\n"," ")

For me, the above solution as well as just row1.field.replaceAll("\n"," ") has worked well.

 

I just want to know how the two replaceAll placed one after another actually work.

as per the solution, first row1.field.replaceAll("\r\n"," ") will exectue and to the oput of row1.field.replaceAll("\r\n"," ")  is passed to replaceAll("\n"," ") will replace \n to empty string.
