I'm not a lambda-core user, but I seem to remember seeing this somewhere 
in one of the programmer utils core objects.  Check $string_utils, etc.  
I think there is a function that already does this.  If you don't find 
it, wait a bit, as someone will undoubtably reply to this message with 
the exact function :^)

Use the strsub function.

strsub("SOMETHING.html", ".html", "")    ->   "SOMETHING"
