    Default string replaceall occurences with strings inside arrays

    Let our string be a sentence that contains several unique terms, such as

    "person1: hello, person2! person3, are you the same person as person4?"

    I would like to replace person1, person2, person 3, and person4 with strings I have in a text file. In the text file, this would be an example of what it looks like:

    person1=example1
    person2=example2
    person3=example3
    person4=example3

    NOTICE how person3 and person4 have the same replacer term - also, I have a bufferedreader that puts the entire text file into an array, lets name it "example".

    How would I have it so that the text gets ALL the elements of array "example" so it can replace the prefix of "=" by the
    suffix of "=". So, the final string would look like:

    "example1: hello, example2! example3, are you the same as example3?"

    Also, note that the size of array "example" is indefinite, as you can add even more lines to the text file.

    Read these two recplace() functions: String (Java 2 Platform SE v1.4.2)
