Need a little help on Perl

Please can someone tell me what to do exactly here with these instructions:

«You can either write an encoding function that would replace blank space
with some invisible character such as \s using regular expression and
replace it back before output or use a if then statement to replace the
system variable with output that is 2 words.»

My problem: example: "Services Financiers" appear as "Services_Financiers"
on the web but I want to have a blankspace. Thank you for helping me ))

    "Services Financiers",

# Define Categorie description

%Categorie_desc =

"Associés\/Franchises\/Occasions d'affaire" => "",
    "Capital Risque & Financement" => "",
    "Cours\/Formation" => "",

RE: Need a little help on Perl

I'm not sure I understand the question, but I'll take a stab at it.....

You can replace a string or group of characters inside another string using.....

$string =~ s/$what_to_replace/$replace_it_with/;

So, with your string in a variable, $string,

$string =~ s/_/ /; # replace an underline with a space

'hope this helps...
