Laslo Hunhold 456f3c4211 tr.1: Make note of some changes in the utility 2016-10-05 21:42:24 +02:00
FRIGN e51a2e6d2f Use ISO-date-format in manpages
The one specified by mdoc is hard to read for non-native
speakers from countries which read the date day-first (like
Germany, Greece, North-Korea, Swamp,...).
This is also consistent with how we generally specify dates

FRIGN 57dc7b94b0 POSIX 2013 audit
Mostly manpage-shuffling according to the changes in the corrigendum,
wording changes and more idiomatic expressions.
All this is finished up by marking the POSIX 2013 conformant tools
.St -p1003.1-2013
which is not available in older mandoc builds or nroff, but which
reflects what we actually did, so who cares?

This is a huge step and it's not far until we can release sbase 0.1.

FRIGN ee6f7d3fc0 Add trivial equivalence class support in tr(1) and update manpage
Equivalence classes are a hard matter and there's still no "standard"
way to solve the issue.
Previously, tr would just skip those classes, but it's much
better when it resolves a [=c=] to a normal c instead of treating
it as a literal.

Also, reflect recent changes in the manpage (octal escapes) and fix
the markup in some areas.

Adria Garriga b3a63a60e4 Improved tr
- Added support for character ranges ( a-z )
- Added support for complementary charset ( -c ), only in delete mode
- Added support for octal escape sequences
- Unicode now only works when there are no octal escape sequences,
  otherwise behavior is not predictable at first sight.
- tr now supports null characters in the input
- Does not yet have support for character classes ( [:upper:] )
