replace(string, pat, r[, n])

Search for the given pattern pat, and replace each occurrence with r. If n is provided, replace at most n occurrences. As with search, the second argument may be a single character, a vector or a set of characters, a string, or a regular expression. If r is a function, each occurrence is replaced with r(s) where s is the matched substring. If pat is a regular expression and r is a SubstitutionString, then capture group references in r are replaced with the corresponding matched text.
