I know this is a more Ruby thing, but I want to strip out all non-word (\W) characters from a string. Is there a regexp way to do this? Right now, I have: params[:object][:item].sub!(/(\W)*/,'') but that only removes the first instance, not all non-word chars. Thanks, - Nic.

I think you just want to call gsub instead of sub... b
