This story begins one evening in January 1998, when Heri Joensen met his old bandmate, Kári Streymoy, at a ball in central Copenhagen, and shouted at him in a raspy drunken voice through the noise and smoke, "You know, we should jam someday". Kári shook his head in hopelessness and replied. "No way man, I haven't held a drumstick in two years".

However sad and hopeless this situation may seem, it escalated, and the plot thickened with the joining of another old bandmate, Gunnar H. Thomsen, making the duo a trio.

Before they could say "Hey, let's make a band!", they found themselves making music heavily inspired by Faroese traditional music, Black Sabbath, old Norse mythology, Dream Theater and classical music.

The years passed, line-ups changed, and time took it's toll on these guys, grinding the band down to it's hard core, which lists as follows:

Heri Joensen - Vocals & Guitar Terji Skibenæs - Guitar Gunnar H. Thomsen - Bass Kári Streymoy - Drums

These characters all originate from an inconspicuously small group of windy islands in the north Atlantic, named the Faeroes (Føroyar in Faeroese) by Grímur Kamban. It means "sheep islands" in old Norse. People from these very islands frequently travel to Denmark for educational purposes, driven by their curious nature.

A thousand years ago these people believed in other gods, as did the neighbouring kingdoms across the sea. Amongst these gods were Tórur, Óðin and Loki. Another one was named Týr, the god of war. He was the bravest of the gods, and in time he was privileged to give name to the band at the peak of music evolution.

tr (2365 words)
The tr output shall be identical to the input, with the exception of the specified transformations.
It was pointed out that, while tr does employ some syntactical elements from REs, the aim of tr is quite different; ranges, for example, do not have a similar meaning (``any of the chars in the range matches", versus "translate each character in the range to the output counterpart").
This meant that historical practice of being able to specify tr -d\200-\377 (which would delete all bytes with the top bit set) would have no effect because, in the C locale, bytes with the values octal 200 to octal 377 are not characters.
tr MAN Page (1179 words)
Although GNU `tr' does not support the System V syntax that uses square brackets to enclose ranges, translations specified in that format will still work as long as the brackets in STRING1 correspond to identical brackets in STRING2.
Therefore, they are not fully implemented in GNU `tr'; each character's equivalence class consists only of that character, which is of no particular use.
For example, these two commands are equivalent: tr aaa xyz tr a z A common use of `tr' is to convert lowercase characters to uppercase.
