I have a String that llooks like this;
""C:\dir1\dir 2\dir 3""
I need to replace the pairs of quotes with just one quote, something like this:
replace ("\"\"", "\"");
(but that doesn't work because the arguments to replace are not String)
How do I do this?

do you mean this;
        String oldStr = "\"\"C:\\dir1\\dir 2\\dir 3\"\"";
        String newStr = oldStr.replaceAll("\"\"", "\"");
        System.out.print(oldStr + ", " + newStr);

it is not a satisfied explanation not to split the point.
btw you can not use multiple solution in your code, so you will never split.
