in reply to Regex expression is matching more than once

tr replaces characters, while s/// replaces substrings.

Your code in fact removes all characters in the set lmx.()$ from the target string.

Update: Athanasius pointed out that I missed the dollar sign in what tr replaces. The expression given to tr// does not interpolate variables.
