FAQ
Hi all,

This should be pretty easy to do but I can't figure it out in Puppet DSL
or ERB. I basically want to repeat a certain character X number of
times, like this:

$string = regsubst("x", "x", "y{30}", "EG")

To replace one 'x' with 30 y's.

Any tips?

    Subject: [Puppet Users] repeat a character in a string a certain number of times

    Hi all,

    This should be pretty easy to do but I can't figure it out in Puppet
    DSL or ERB. I basically want to repeat a certain character X number of
    times, like this:

    $string = regsubst("x", "x", "y{30}", "EG")

    To replace one 'x' with 30 y's.

    Any tips?
    Using ruby:
    "foo".gsub("o", "a" * 20)
    => "faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa"
    "foo".sub("o", "a" * 20)
    => "faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaao"
