/[HELP!]/ regxp replace uppercase/lowercase

Hi,
I need to get replace all the uppercase characters in a string with a
lowercase character and a '-'
__ie __________________________________________________
'backgroundColor' becomes 'background-color'
'borderWidth' becomes 'border-width';
-----------------------------------------------------
in PHP strtolower(ereg_replace("[A-Z]", "-\\0" , $var)); works
but obviously I'm not using php
any help much appreciated
cheers

javascript regular expressions are closer to the ones in Perl.
The closest Javascript to your PHP example would be:

var newString = oldString.replace(/[A-Z]/g,"-$&").toLowerCase();

A more exotic method (just for the fun of it) is:

var newString = oldString.replace(/[A-Z]/g,function(s){
return "-"+s.toLowerCase();
});

Both work in Netscape 4, IE6, Opera 7, and Mozilla FB 0.6.
The latter doesn't work in Netscape 3, Opera 6 or IE 5 (or earlier).
