in thread Caution - contents may settle in transit

Well.. i've tried to understand it but my english seems to lack a bit... i've tryed : $res = tr'ou''hello'; thinking I would get "hellu" in $res but it gives me some error... could you give me a working exemple? Thanks a lot, I know I must be a pain for you. Sorry

    Is it just me, or does anyone smell a troll? ;-)

      I'm beginning to think so...

        Hey.. what do you all mean? THanks Casey, I finnaly understand the link. I tought first it was a completely different command than tr///! With all your help and exemple, i've done it even if I'm far from mastering perl. It's a great language though!

    my $variable = 'hello'; $variable =~ tr/o/u/; print $variable;
    You need to read perlop to figure out how to use tr and it's family.

      Hi, thanks again casey! The only question left is the folowing : if $t="1234" and $_="abcd" and the script does an s/hello/$t/seee; what the "seee" do change? I think it does nothing but... can't find why it is in the script...
        Check perlop for the s operator. It gives a clear definition of s statement modifiers.

        In you case, those modifiers don't help much... look up what 'i' or 'g' does... Am I helping you with your homework?
