7.1.5.21 $TRanslate

$TR[ANSLATE] ( expr1 , expr2 )

Let s be the value of expr1, $TRanslate(expr1,expr2) returns an edited form of s in which all characters in s which are found in expr2 are removed.

$TR[ANSLATE] ( expr1 , expr2 , expr3 )

Let s be the value of expr1, $TRanslate(expr1,expr2,expr3) returns an edited form of s in which all characters in s which are found in expr2 are replaced by the positionally corresponding character in expr3. If a character in s appears more than once in expr2 the first (leftmost) occurrence is used to positionally locate the translation.

Translation is performed once for each character in s. Characters which are in s that are not in expr2 remain unchanged. Characters in expr2 which have no corresponding character in expr3 are deleted from s (this is the case when expr3 is shorter than expr2).

Note: If the value of expr2 is the empty string, no translation is performed and s is returned unchanged.
