This function takes a string and returns a copy with all occurrences of http:// and https:// removed. The string, "Please visit http://example.com to find out more" would convert to "Please visit example.com to find out more". Generally this is more compact as the http:// is redundant when you are obviously referring to a URL.
Optionally, this function can also strip the www subdomain by passing true as the second parameter. It's set to false by default as example.com and www.example.com could theoretically contain different websites.
- function stripHttp(string:String, stripWWW:Boolean = false):String
- var s:String = string;
- var regexp:RegExp = new RegExp(!stripWWW ? "https*:\/\/" : "https*:\/\/(www\.)*", "ig");
- return s.replace(regexp, "");
