I am trying to convert some old Perl scripts to Ruby and am stuck at a
spot where my Perl script is doing a regular expression match on some
text pulled from a webpage.

In Perl, I was able to grab the text I wanted by putting () around the
regular expression which represented the data I wanted, then access it
with the x[0] method.

Is there something like this in Ruby? I was looking through the String
class and don't really see a method listed to do this.

I want to be able to do a kind of match like:

        m/^Title([a-zA-Z0-9])//g

and access what's inside the () with x[0].

Thanks
