string maniupationg question


I have some strings that look like this

 . 1/10 .
 . 2/45 .

this is: space, full stop, space, one or more numbers , forward slash, one or more numbers, space, fullstop, space

what i need to do is extract the bit in the middle (one or more numbers , forward slash, one or more numbers)

e.g 1/10, 2/45

and then if the first number happens to be 0, convert it to 1

e.g. 0/10 --> 1,10

how would i do this?
