This would be a lower case to upper case and would expose the same problem. And a closing bracket is missing also. Don't know what the $Z should mean in your example. In my example echo Z served as feeding a 'Z' to the tr pipe. But the problem is solved. As Kris suspected and someone else explained it is a locale issue. One should indeed use :lower: :upper: keywords. Or set the locale accordingly for old shell scripts to work correctly. -- Chris Christoph P. U.
