> I have the situation where I have a String template with a dozen replacements
> I need to make.  When I loop through and use StringUtils.replace each time, it
> has to make a StringBuffer of the whole template each time.  I think we could
> make this more efficient if we had a replace() method which took an array of
> Strings to search for, and an array of Strings to replace with (or we could
> use a Collection or List or something).  This way we could possibly do the
> replace in one StringBuffer result.
> One issue is if the replacement text has Strings to be replaced, do we iterate
> through again until there are no Strings to search for?  Based on your
> replaceChars(String str, String searchChars, String replaceChars) method, I
> assume the answer is no, but we could have a boolean flag to have it both ways.
> I can write this for you if you are interested, please let me know.
> Thanks!
