Replace Post-processing Function

Replace Post-processing function can be used in agents to replace some text with another in extracted field result. For example, I have this scraping agent "Replace Function Example(Post-Processing)" in my account. And I want to replace the $ symbol with USD from the ProductPrice field in each row. So, I can use the built-in Replace post-processing function here.
