This is a bug report for perl from peter@psdt.com,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.39 running under perl 5.19.2.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
[Please describe your issue here]

% perldoc -f tr
    Quote and Quote-like Operators
[...]
            tr/SEARCHLIST/REPLACEMENTLIST/cdsr
%

It should have kept going and displayed the documentation for tr|y. It 
stopped because it reached the =item line for y/// in this extract from 
perlop.pod:

=item tr/SEARCHLIST/REPLACEMENTLIST/cdsr
X<tr> X<y> X<transliterate> X</c> X</d> X</s>

=item y/SEARCHLIST/REPLACEMENTLIST/cdsr

Not sure what the best fix would be here.

[Please do not change anything below this line]
