Problem with REPLACE

    Hi
    I’m loading a file:
    E = LOAD ‘file.txt’ using TextLoader() as (row:chararray);
    dump E;

    (1 {(R1C1),(R2C1),(R3C1)})

    This is just a row of text (yes, i know it looks like a bag…)

    Now I want to replace all ( with let’s say letter a:
    F = foreach E generate REPLACE($0,’/(‘,’a’);
    dump F;

    And I receive ();

    What do I do wrong?
    Thanks
    Pawel

    OK, I’ve found solution.
    I just have to use double // before reserved characters.

    REPLACE($0,’\\(‘,”),
