Hi all

I'm have a character vector and would like to suppress the blanks if there are more than one after the other.


Character value is: "abc def ghi"
The result should be: "abc def ghi"

I know that it's possible to delete the leading blanks with the command "trim". But how can I delete blanks within a character?

Thank you very much in advance for an answer Thomas
