TR(1)                       General Commands Manual                      TR(1)



NAME
       tr - translate characters

SYNOPSIS
       tr [ -cds ] [ string1 [ string2 ] ]

DESCRIPTION
       Tr copies the standard input to the standard output with substitution
       or deletion of selected characters (runes).  Input characters found in
       string1 are mapped into the corresponding characters of string2.  When
       string2 is short it is padded to the length of string1 by duplicating
       its last character.  Any combination of the options -cds may be used:

       -c     Complement string1: replace it with a lexicographically ordered
              list of all other characters.

       -d     Delete from input all characters in string1.

       -s     Squeeze repeated output characters that occur in string2 to
              single characters.

       In either string a noninitial sequence -x, where x is any character
       (possibly quoted), stands for a range of characters: a possibly empty
       sequence of codes running from the successor of the previous code up
       through the code for x.  The character followed by 1, 2 or 3 octal
       digits stands for the character whose 16-bit value is given by those
       digits.  The character sequence followed by 1, 2, 3, or 4 hexadecimal
       digits stands for the character whose 16-bit value is given by those
       digits.  A followed by any other character stands for that character.

EXAMPLES
       Replace all upper-case ASCII letters by lower-case.

              tr A-Z a-z <mixed >lower

       Create a list of all the words in one per line in where a word is taken
       to be a maximal string of alphabetics.  String2 is given as a quoted
       newline.

              tr -cs A-Za-z '
              ' <file1 >file2
