I need to remove /" from a vector. This is my data:

data <- c("/"https://click.linksynergy.com/link?id=RUxZriH*PWc&offerid=323058.1803224&type=2&murl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.udemy.com%2Flinux-linux-security-masterclass-3-in-1%2F",  "/"https://click.linksynergy.com/link?id=RUxZriH*PWc&offerid=323058.1848638&type=2&murl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.udemy.com%2Fmastering-kali-linux%2F",  "/"https://click.linksynergy.com/link?id=RUxZriH*PWc&offerid=323058.1426684&type=2&murl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.udemy.com%2Finformation-gathering-with-kali-linux%2F",  "/"https://click.linksynergy.com/link?id=RUxZriH*PWc&offerid=323058.1628300&type=2&murl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.udemy.com%2Flinux-switchblade%2F",  "/"https://click.linksynergy.com/link?id=RUxZriH*PWc&offerid=323058.1615700&type=2&murl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.udemy.com%2Fadministrador-de-sistemas-junior-en-windows-server-y-linux%2F",  "/"https://click.linksynergy.com/link?id=RUxZriH*PWc&offerid=323058.809770&type=2&murl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.udemy.com%2Flearn-bash-shell-in-linux-for-beginners-lite%2F",  "/"https://click.linksynergy.com/link?id=RUxZriH*PWc&offerid=323058.574388&type=2&murl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.udemy.com%2Fhow-to-install-linux-ubuntu-server%2F",  "/"https://click.linksynergy.com/link?id=RUxZriH*PWc&offerid=323058.1436610&type=2&murl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.udemy.com%2Fcentos-and-ubuntu-managing-packages%2F",  "/"https://click.linksynergy.com/link?id=RUxZriH*PWc&offerid=323058.1771266&type=2&murl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.udemy.com%2Flinux-foundation-certified-system-administrator-exam%2F",  "/"https://click.linksynergy.com/link?id=RUxZriH*PWc&offerid=323058.1734052&type=2&murl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.udemy.com%2Flinux-server-security%2F" ) 

As you can see, every object starts with /". How can I specifically remove these characters and leave the links?

 


You can try this. Note that what you actually want is to remove /", not "/ (as proposed in the unedited version of your question). The first " you need to represent each element in the character.

gsub('[/"]', '', data)
