       from   -- substrings to be translated. May be      in
                 an array.
       to     -- what strings in from should be           in
                 translated to. May be an array.
Keyword Parameters
       /HELP  -- Set this to print useful message and
Output Parameters
       new    -- Translated string. Array if oldstr is    out
                 an array.

Common Blocks

Side Effects

       - Any of old, from, and to can be arrays.
       - from and to must have the same number of elements.
       to  =[' ',' ',' ',' ']
       out = strtrans(inp,from,to,ned)
       Will produce out='Many bad chars in here', and set ned to 4.

       $Log: strtrans.pro,v $
       Revision 1.7  2004/06/15 17:25:54  mcraig
       Fixed bug in regular expression, changed array notation to square brackets
       Revision 1.6  2004/01/11 01:49:00  mcraig
       Changed format of one array to newer [] style to avoidf conflict with function name in astro library.
       Revision 1.5  2001/11/23 21:14:35  mcraig
       Added keywords /EXTRACT, /PRESERVE_NULL, /REGEX to call to
       strsplit. This comes very close to reproducing the behavior of the
       obsolete routine str_sep.
       Revision 1.4  2001/11/21 19:13:23  mcraig
       Changed str_sep to strsplit. The former is now considered obsolete by RSI.
       Revision 1.3  1996/06/14 20:00:27  mcraig
       Updated Copyright info.
       Revision 1.2  1996/05/09 00:22:17  mcraig
       Sped up significantly by using str_sep to handle the translation.  No longer
       relies on routines fromother user libraries.
       Revision 1.1  1996/01/31 18:47:37  mcraig
       Initial revision
