$string = "<TITLE>Test title</TITLE>";
$string =~ s/<[^>]+>//g;
print "$string";

   "Test title"

The expression matches all occurrences of a "<", followed by one or more characters that aren't a ">", followed by a ">". If you don't have the "g" at the end, it will only match the first occurrence.
