R – Find white space between end of word and equal sign


I have of word documents filled with this type of lines

  1. word  = home
  2. fig       = tree
  3. car                  = yatch

I want to select the white space between the end of the first word and the = sign. There is a search and replace feature in word but I can't figure out the regex that will select those spaces. Any help is appreciated.

Word? You mean, Microsoft(r) Word(tm)? Maybe this

> @=

replace with "="
