For Example:

A perl :
perl -pne 's/\s+[^\n]/,/g' file

---------- Post updated at 02:30 PM ---------- Previous update was at 02:24 PM ----------

This is the right one Smilie:
perl -pne 's/\s+([^\s+])/,\1/g' file

---------- Post updated at 02:30 PM ---------- Previous update was at 02:30 PM ----------

This is the right one Smilie:
