Here's a little function that replaces any std::string with another std::string:
//
std::string Replace(std::string &str, const char *string_to_replace, const char *new_string)
{
  // Find the first string to replace
  int index = str.find(string_to_replace);
  // while there is one
  while(index != std::string::npos)
  {
    // Replace it
    str.replace(index, strlen(string_to_replace), new_string);
    // Find the next one
    index = str.find(string_to_replace, index + strlen(new_string));
  }
  return str;
}
