in reply to string manipulation

($outstring = $instring) =~ tr/-/_/;

This might be a little better.

The tr (translate) operator does exactly what you are asking for. man perlop for more info.

Also, in Perl, strings and arrays are not interchangible. $string[2] does not get you the third letter of $ gets you the third element of the array @string, a different beast entirely.

    Ch. 15 in Learning Perl also gives a good explaination of transliteration.
