Hi,

I would do it like this:

Code:
my $test = "andy foo --- Hey, this is a title! Come & read me =)))";
$test = lc($test); # lowercase normal A-Z
$test =~ tr||aaaaaacceeeeeeeeiiiiiiiooooooouuuuuu|; # convert all utf into a-z
$test =~ s/[^0-9a-z]+/-/gi; # anything that DOESNT match 0-9 or a-z, convert to -
$test =~ s/-+/-/gi; # if we have stuff like --- just replace with -


Angelic
