Does anyone have a recursive Find/Replace function for ActionScript 3?  I've searched and searched the all-knowing Google and have come up with nothing useful, and it seems the built in replace function only replaces the first match.

Here you go:

<code>

-V
var myString:String = "Ahem... hello there, what's up? hello again";
var myNewString:String = strReplace(myString,"hello","hi");
trace(myNewString);
 
function strReplace(str:String,lookUp:String,replaceWith:String):String {
	var retVal:String;
	var startStr:String;
	var endStr:String;
	var index:Number;
	retVal = str;
	index = retVal.indexOf(lookUp);
	if(index!=-1) {
		while(index!=-1) {
			startStr = retVal.substr(0,index);
			endStr = retVal.substr(index+lookUp.length,retVal.length);
			retVal = startStr + replaceWith + endStr;
			index = retVal.indexOf(lookUp);
		}
	} 
	return retVal;
}
