more tr portability test script fixes
Dealing with NULs is not always safe with tr. On Solaris, incoming NULs are silently deleted by both the System V and UCB versions of tr. When converting to NULs, the System V version works fine, but the UCB version silently ignores the request to convert the character. This patch changes all instances of tr using NULs to use "perl -pe 'y///'" instead. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
