Hi guys so I was playing with some code which would determine the whether a string is a palindrome or not. Its been a mixed bag of results with some palindromes being detected while others aren't. I do apologize to the lack of polish of my comments but I hope that someone might be able to see where the error is and give me good feedback. I think the error is in the set of code that removes the special characters from the string.
As a reference, I am using this webiste: http://www.palindromelist.net/ as the source for the palindrome strings. However the really long ones have resulted in errors.

What errors exactly? Help us to help you.

commented: Yes. "Missing value on line 42" can really speed this along. +15

So the errors that arise is that some palindromic strings are not being detected for example, " Are we not pure? “No sir!” Panama’s moody Noriega brags. “It is garbage!” Irony dooms a man; a prisoner up to new era." which is clearly a palindrome is detected as not palindromic. I think I have removed all special characters that are in the string.

I have made a small change to the code regarding the string: Are we not pure? “No sir!” Panama’s moody Noriega brags. “It is garbage!” Irony dooms a man; a prisoner up to new era. And hence I print out the resulting string after the special character removal code.

How do I remove the remaining special characters?

The double quote marks in your input string are open/close double curly quotes, not simple straight double quotes, so you do not remove them.

Thank you so much for all who commented. I couldn't let it go and I found a simple regular expression that would remove all non word characters and I replaced that with all the string.replace code. Finally!!! I guess I will be learning Regular expressions in the near future LOLOL.

I have attached the code below as:

That regex is almost right. It removes everything that's not a word character, but regex defines a "word character" as being made of any letters or numbers or underscores. (Presumably that was defined to be useful for parsing variables names ?) Your test data doesn't happen to have numbers or an underscore in it, so it doesn't reveal this bug.

If you just want to process letters in your palindrome test then the simplest correct regex would test explicitly just for letters, eg

s = s.toLowerCase().replaceAll("[^a-z]", ""); // delete everything that's not a-z
commented: I am keeping the numbers, just in case I ever come across a question similar to #4 in project Euler in the future. +3
