How to replace slash characters in field values with spaces instead (ex: change "A/B/C/D" to "A B C D")?

New Member

I have a field named httpUrl. This field has values with slashes like "/document/import/upload/reload/". I want to replace all the slashes with spaces. So the final thing should look like httpUrl="document import upload reload". How do I achieve this?
