    Re: Brief Idea on the UNIX command

    tr command in UNIX as said by you is used for translating characters from standard input.
    The general syntax of this command is:
    tr character_from character_to

    That is in above character_from and character_to can take one or more single characters. The character_from denotes the input character and whatever is found in this character_from is translated to character_to. The final translated character or output is written to standard output which is the terminal

    The above is the general syntax of this tr command but I think there are also many options in this command which I am not aware of. Hope that someone would post those in this discussion.
