    Post removing characters from strings

    Im looking for an eloquent way (like something in the stl?) to do the following pseudocode:

    str1 = "hi im sue. hi im joe!";
    str2;
    str2 = remove(".", str1);
    str2 = remove("!", str2);

    I figure somebody knows a better way of doing this than looping through and cating str1's desired characters onto str2. There has to be a nice function (probablly in the stl) that does exactly what im looking for.
