I would like to delete all the instances of a '.' into a number.
In other words I'd like to replace all the instances of a '.' character
with something (say nothing at all) when the '.' is representing a
decimal separator. E.g.
500.675 ----> 500675
1.000.456.344 ----> 1000456344
I don't care about the fact the the resulting number is difficult to
read: as long as it remains a series of digits it's ok: the important
thing is to get rid of the period, because I want to keep it only where
it marks the end of a sentence.
I was trying to do like this
but I don't know much about regular expressions, and don't know how to
get the two groups of numbers and join them in the sub. Moreover doing
like this I only match things like "345.000" and not "1.000.000".
What's the correct approach?
