in reply to Remove Double Quotes from XML Output

The following removes all double quotes from the string stored in the $column1 variable using the substitution operator:
($column1,$column2,) = split(','); $column1 =~ s/"//g;

If that does not work for you, then you should show several examples of strings you are working with.
