> regular expressions
i have a scalar as follows
$journal = STRUCTURE (LONDON)
when i query this in cgi, it is done so as
this gives the + in the middle to complete the URL.
However in order to query the URL PROPERLY i need for my string to read
$journal = STRUCTURE LONDON
so that the CGI query is STRUCTURE+LONDON.
how can i write a regex that will remove these brackets from the string???
$journal = ~ s/ (help remove brackets) //g;
thanks in advance
