Part of the series: Linux in the Shell

Linux In The Shell aims to explore the use of many commands a user can run in the Bash Shell. Tutorials include a write up with examples, an audio component about the write up, and a video component to demonstrate the usage of the command.
The website is http://www.linuxintheshell.com/

In the third in the series, Dann introduces us to the tr command.

Here's a flavour:
The tr, or translate (aka: transliterate) command, substitutes one more characters for another set of characters or it will delete a specified set of characters. The tr command takes input from standard in and writes to standard out. This simple example of the tr command translates some numbers into a word:

echo "12234" |tr '1234' 'aple'

The output:

apple
