in reply to Strip non-numeric

Try this  $var =~ s/\D//g; This (untested) code will remove all non-numeric characters from the string.

Update: I fixed my type where I left the g off the regexp. Sorry
Update:2 I also fixed the /// problem that tall_man pointed out. Thanks.

    There's one extra "/" at the end, and no "g" flag so only one would be removed. You need:
    $var =~ s/\D//g;
    Update: The "g" was just fixed in the message I replied to, but not the extra "/"
    Update 2:Now all the problems are fixed. :)
