Unix Tip #4434- May 2, 2013

ANOTHER CASE TRANSLATION


If you have occasion where
you need to translate upper
case to lower and vice
versa, and happen to run a
ksh, enter the following
functions into your .profile:

function trans
{
tr '[:upper:]' '[:lower:]' < $1 > $2
}
function TRANS
{
tr '[:lower:]' '[:upper:]' <$1 > $2
}


The first function will
translate all uppercase
letters in the first file
(argument) to lowercase in
the second file.

The second function TRANS does the exact opposite.
