Given a simple list of strings: list = List["Z:XBREG","Z:XBREH","Z:XBREI","Z:ZZ6P","Z:ZZ6Q","aye"] how does one delete all the strings with a colon (:) anywhere in the string? DeleteCases[list, ___:___] looks very logical and should work, but of course it doesn't . Also, there is a StringCases function which would seem to correspond with the Cases function. There is a DeleteCases function but no string counterpart, namely, DeleteString function. Any reason for this? Thanks in advance.
