My log is as below. I want to replace bracket with space. I have tried ~s/(/ /g; and ~s#(# #g; but it doesn't work. Does anybody know any way to do this?

Thanks very much!

probably is more like

$log = '
acl_Application_access permitted tcp 192.168.113.38(3394) 10.108.80.11(135)
acl_Application_access permitted tcp 192.168.201.57(3395) 10.108.80.11(1025)
acl_Application_access permitted tcp 192.168.34.169(3396) 10.108.80.11(445)
';

$log  =~  s/\(/ /g;
$log  =~  s/\)//g;
print $log;
