Hi

Remove them all then put back the first and the last ? Of course, that works only if there is nothing before the first and after the last quote ( or there is, but a fixed text ).

Otherwise use one of these ( both supposing the original string is in variable $str ) :

CODE --> Tcl ( list manipulation )

set part [split $str "\""]
set newstr [join [list [lindex $part 0] [join [lrange $part 1 end-1] ""] [lindex $part end]] "\""] 

CODE --> Tcl ( string manipulation )

set first [expr [string first "\"" $str] + 1]
set last [expr [string last "\"" $str] - 1]
set newstr [string replace $str $first $last [string map {"\"" ""} [string range $str $first $last]]]
