    I think you're right. It's odd, but none of the books or docs that I have show any flags to run tr/// with... Thanks for your help on an insanely moronic question <you guys here are always nice, even when dumb questions are asked> Thanks again!

      Check out perldoc perlop for the options to tr. As it appears our site docs are still a bit old, here is an excerpt from a Perl5.6.0 dist:
      c   Complement the SEARCHLIST.
      d   Delete found but unreplaced characters.
      s   Squash duplicate replaced characters.
      U   Translate to/from UTF-8.
      C   Translate to/from 8-bit char (octet).

      Please list the names of those books, so we can be sure to dis-recommend them for others.

      My copy of the Camel certainly mentions all the tr///; switches. But, I'll admit when I first started Perl I would buy these books off the Street Vendors in NYC for $5. I got the Dummies book and one about Perl for Windows NT Servers. Both of them were barely worth even the little cash I shelled out, and left out major details. The O'Reilly books are popular for a reason.
