Hi Perl Monks, have a simple regex issue where I wish to omit dashes from the following numeric variable: 0001144204-09-017358 . Simple, but clearly I lack the skills to get 'er done. Relevant code appears below. As is, the code extracts everything prior to the first dash.

#several other lines betweeen here, omitted for brevity;
