How to edit my eval replace / trim statement to format domain information?

So I have some domain information that i'm attempting to format appropriately with EVAL functions either replace, or rtrim, and I seem to be having some difficulty.

I'm attempting to shave off the periods before and after the value. Here is the type of values that I'm getting:

query=".www.google.com."

and this is my eval statement so far:

| eval aaa=replace(query, "\".([^\.]+).\", "\1"")

It doesn't seem to be taking, so I was wondering if I'm typoing something somewhere? I simply assume my syntax is wrong. 😃

Thank you!

Try `trim(query, "\."). If you prefer replace, then you need to escape the . (period) characters with a \ (backslash)
