The previous command was for replacing the path, if you want to replace double quotes with nothing, then I suggest you use a separate command.

Code:
perl -pi -w -e 's/\"//g' /tmp/1.sh

Please note that will remove all double quotes, and not just the double quotes of the paths!

I was totally wrong ... tried diff options ...
here is the string ....


Code:
if [[ "$ORACLE_HOME" = "/opt/product/11.2.0/racdb" || "$ORACLE_HOME" = "/opt/crs/gsw/11202" ]]; then

I want to change to

Code:
if [[ $ORACLE_HOME = /opt/product/11.2.0/* || $ORACLE_HOME = /opt/crs/gsw/* ]]; then
