I was looking up the docs for Javascript's String replace() function the other day [and] I also noticed it can take a callback instead of a string for its replacement argument. How cool is that?

I figured this could be handy for CFML's reReplace() function too [... etc]

I've found Adam's UDF invaluable for my task. I cannot recommend it highly enough for native inclusion into ColdFusion!

reReplace with callback support would be awesome. JavaScript has it. Ben coded one here with Java's regex:

What's actually been implemented here? I can find no docs for it.

Hi Vamsee, Thanks! Just a couple remaining issues: 1) It wasn't added to replaceNoCase(), reReplace() or reReplaceNoCase() (please see Adam's blog entry - URL in previous comment) 2) Callback should also receive "count of the current replacement operation" (please see discussion here: Thanks!, -Aaron

@Vamsee any chance you can not just start ignoring the ticket when the conversation isn't going in a way that's convenient for you?

Please see this new ticket which was created for the remaining functions. I also suggested a spec there for handing the callback in the regex-based functions.

Hi Adobe, I've verified this is fixed in CF2016 Update 1 (build 2016.0.01.298513), well except for Replace()'s 3 sibling functions of course. :/ Thanks!, -Aaron
