// Example of using the StrSubstitutor class
public class StrSubstitutorExample {
   public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
      
      // Create a StrSubstitutor with a lookup map
      HashMap map = new HashMap();
      map.put("animal", "quick brown fox");
      map.put("target", "lazy dog");
      StrSubstitutor sub = new StrSubstitutor(map);
      
      // Substitute an English template
      String temp = "The ${animal} jumped over the ${target}.";
      String str = sub.replace(temp);
      System.out.println(str);
      
      // Substitute a French template
      temp = "Le ${animal} par dessus le ${target}.";
      str = sub.replace(temp);
      System.out.println(str);
     
      // Create a list of properties as the lookup map
      Properties lookup = new Properties();
      lookup.setProperty("name", "John");
      lookup.setProperty("url", "jar.fyicenter.com");
      
      // Substitute a template with the list of properties
      temp = "Hi ${name}, welcome to ${url}!";

      System.out.println(str);
