When in doubt, trust the actual Perl documentation over any other website. Type "perldoc perlop" at your command line.

The issue with the unofficial documentation you found is that tr does not take special regular expression escapes like "\d" or bracketed classes like "[abc]" in its arguments.

    Note that "tr" does not do regular expression character classes such as "\d" or "[:lower:]".
$string =~ tr/0123456789/ /c;
It does support ranges, but use no brackets. Shortcut the above with the special hyphen:
$string =~ tr/0-9/ /c;

[ e d @ h a l l e y . c c ]

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
