Recently the '-d' flag was added to the 'tr' program. I liked the
simplicity of not having to specify the '-d' flag to delete characters
specified in set1 and the TODO entry (still to be deleted) does not
mention it.

I can see the need for a '-d' flag for compatibility reasons but my
preference would be to just ignore the flag if it is specified. What are
peoples opinion on the '-d' flag?

In any case, the tr.1 man page should be updated and the TODO item
removed which I will do as soon as the decision has been made.

Have a nice weekend, everyone!
