Hi,
What do you want to achieve with this regular expression?
If you want to replace all single quotes with double quotes, here's how:

script = script.replace(/'/g, '"')

I just want to add a little bit. If you want to change all the characters in a string, then instead of replace() you can use .split("").join("")

Example:

 

 

 

script = script.replace(/'/g, '"')
script = script.split("'").join('"')
