Help with regular expressions

Hi all,

Easy enough if I want to replace a letter… let’s say I wanted to replace all instances of the letter “e”, I would do this:

var str:String = "things/stuff/cheese/yum";
var myPattern:RegExp = /e/g;  
trace(str.replace(myPattern, "."));
// returns: "things/stuff/ch..s./yum"

… but how do I replace all instances of “/”??
