$var = '6-2 Dual Mode Selection';
my($chapter,$title) = $var =~ m/(\d+-\d+)\s+([\w\s]+)$/
will capture the info... I'm sure there's (another|better) way to do it
though, as this requires definate markers of data all on the same line.

I am trying to replace a white space that lies between an number and a
capital letter without changing either the number or the letter. I can't
find any examples on this.. Can anyone tell me how to do this?

6-2 Dual Mode Selection...... separating out Dual Mode Selection from 6-2 

Thanks jb
