use strict;
use warnings;

sub generate_slug {
  my $title = shift;

  # Convert the title to lowercase
  $title = lc $title;

  # Replace spaces with dashes
  $title =~ s/s+/-/g;

  # Remove non-alphanumeric characters
  $title =~ s/[^a-z0-9-]+//g;

  return $title;
}

my $title = "My Great Article";
my $slug = generate_slug($title);

print "$slug
";


This code defines a generate_slug function that takes a title as input, converts it to lowercase, replaces spaces with dashes, and removes non-alphanumeric characters. The resulting string is the URL slug.

This code can be used as a starting point, but do note that URL slugs can have additional requirements or variations depending on the specific application or desired formatting. Further modifications may be needed to tailor the code to your specific requirements.

Absolutely, you're correct that additional modifications may be required based on specific requirements or variations for URL slug generation. The code provided serves as a basic starting point, and you can customize and enhance it based on your specific needs. For example, you may want to consider handling special characters, preserving non-alphanumeric characters, adding support for multilingual slugs, or handling duplicate slugs. Customizing the code will ensure it fits your specific use case.
