Clean a header

Hi, I’ve a string like this:

header = “Header : \r\n \t \r\n \t 111 aaa 2222 3333 \r\n”

I need to clean it and leave as follows:

“Header:111 aaa 2222 3333”

The best I get is this:

header.strip.gsub(/(\s*)/,"")
=> “Header:111aaa22223333”

Obviously this is not valid since it “eats” the spaces into the header
body. How could I fix it?

Thanks in advance.

=> “Header : \r\n \t \r\n \t 111 aaa 2222 3333 \r\n”
irb> header.strip.sub(/\s*:\s*/,’:’).gsub(/\s+/,’ ')
=> “Header:111 aaa 2222 3333”

Good enough?

Thanks a lot.
