Hello Everybody,

I am trying to create a script to transcode files for a PDA.  I am
trying to save the file with the filenanme as TITLE-STARTTIME.avi.
I'm trying to remove non-alphanumeric chars in TITLE and am stuck.  I
thought the following script code would work for 'Will & Grace', but
it doesn't.

# Remove non-alpha characters from TITLE
[[ $TITLE =~ s/[^a-zA-Z0-9]//g ]]
echo $TITLE

I still get 'Will & Grace' instead of 'WillGrace'.

Any help?
