This and other RFCs are available on the web at http://dev.perl.org/rfc/ =head1 TITLE Allow Varibles in tr/// =head1 VERSION Maintainer: Richard Proctor <email@example.com> Date: 27 Aug 2000 Mailing List: firstname.lastname@example.org Version: 1 Number: 165 =head1 ABSTRACT Allow variables in a tr///. At present the only way to do a tr/$foo/$bar/ is to wrap it up in an eval. I dont like using evals for this sort of thing. =head1 DESCRIPTION Suggested syntax: tr/$foo/$bar/e With a /e, tr will expand both the LHS and RHS of the translate function. Either or both could be variables. I am suggesting /e as it is sort of like /e for s///e. =head1 IMPLENTATION No idea, but should be straight forward. =head1 REFERENCES None yet.
