    Regular Expression - find double hyphens only

    mystagogos

      I am wondering if there's a way to write a regular expression to find double hyphens and change them to single hyphens.  The catch is that some of the text I'm searching through have multiple hyphens.

       

      Example:

       

      str1 = "Here is my sample text with double -- and I would like to replace this with one hyphen."

      str2 = "Here is another sample with multiple hyphens ----- that I do not want to change but leave as is."

       


      Is there a way to change only str1 to a single hyphen and keep str2 as is?
