    Transliterate

    This is a rewrite of the perl tr method.

    To use

    const tr = require('perl-transliterate');
    tr(str, searchStr, replaceStr [, flags])
    

    Without flags:

    const tr = require('perl-transliterate');
    
    let str = 'abba';
    
    str = tr(str, 'ab', 'po');
    
    console.log(str === 'poop');
    

    Here we're taking a string we want to search through (abba) and searching for instances of ab to be replaced with po: all instances of a will be replaced with p and all instances of b will be replaced by o.

    With Flags:

    s

    const tr = require('perl-transliterate');
    
    let str = 'abba';
    str = tr(str, 'ab', 'po', 's');
    
    console.log(str === 'pop');
    

    The s flag will squash characters that appear sequentially in a row, so becase b is being replaced with o and the s flag is set, it will remove an instance of b and replace with a single instance of o creating: pop. Whilst a appears twice, they are not sequntial, and thus will each will be replaced with p.

    d

    const tr = require('perl-transliterate');
    
    let str = 'adam';
    str = tr(str, 'adm', 'ev', 'd');
    
    console.log(str === 'eve');
    

    The d flag will remove characters that appear in the search string but do not have a replacement string value. In the above example, m is in the search string, but does not have a replacement string value, meaning that any m found in the string will be removed.

    ds

    const tr = require('perl-transliterate');
    
    let str = 'abba';
    str = tr(str, 'ab', 'p', 'ds');
    
    console.log(str === 'p');
    

    d and s can be combined.
