Is is possible to condense this repeating jQuery?

I have a similar type of code that I need to repeat in jQuery about 10 times. How do I condense it?

(I've just shown you the first two repetitions):

		$('[class^="cmsms-icon-"]').removeClass(function(i, cls) {
			var target = cls.match(/(^|\s)cmsms-icon-\S+/g) || [];
			$('a', this).addClass(target[0]);
			return target[0];
		});
		$('[class^="mfcustom-icon-"]').removeClass(function(i, cls) {
			var target = cls.match(/(^|\s)mfcustom-icon-\S+/g) || [];
			$('a', this).addClass(target[0]);
			return target[0];
		});

Open in new window


thanks

Try:
$('[class^="cmsms-icon-"],[class^="mfcustom-icon-"]').removeClass(function(i, cls) {
			var target = cls.match(/(^|\s)(cmsms-icon-|mfcustom-icon-)\S+/g) || [];
			$('a', this).addClass(target[0]);
			return target[0];
		});

But since you are using a 'starts with' selector, then I would expect mfcustom-icon-XXX or cmsms-icon-XXX to always be at the start, I would try:
$('[class^="cmsms-icon-"],[class^="mfcustom-icon-"]').removeClass(function(i, cls) {
			var target = cls.split(' ');
			$('a', this).addClass(target[0]);
			return target[0];
		});
