*laughs* You know, I've never once used tr in a script that didn't involve cut'n'paste from someone else. TMTOWTDI at its best (worst?)! Yes, tr is faster in this specific instance. No, I'll probably never use it because I very rarely (if ever!) do straight character substitutions. If I'm stripping out characters, I'm doing that as part of a series of substitutions, usually involving s/\s//g and not some specific character(s).

If you can read either, use the faster one. But, please note that speed of execution is not Perl's strong suit. It's good at that, but speed of development is why most people use Perl. In that vein, s/"//g is just as good.

Don't go borrowing trouble. For programmers, this means Worry only about what you need to implement.

Title:
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.
