Trim Post-Processing function

The "Trim" Post-Processing function can be used in agents. Where, I want to remove comma separated characters from both side of the string. For example, I have this scraping agent "TrimStart Function Example(Post-Processing)" in my account and I want to remove (') characters from both side of the string in each row of the field "Contact" using "trim" post-processing function.
