How to remove certain character from a vector

0 votes

I have a vector which looks something like this, c(61,33,"67*",98,"32*", "73*"). I need to clean the data using R by transforming this into a vector without the extra *. The result in this example should be c(61,33,67,98,32,73).

We can use sub to remove the * by specifying fixed = TRUE as it is a metacharacter that denotes zero or more characters.
