tr '\verb|\|000' '\verb|\|\n'?
Can somebody explain the subject line to me please. I have read it in
a linux training document and it is not doing what the document says
it should do. What I do not understand and do not know where to find
documentation on it is the '\verb|\|000' '\verb|\|\n' part. I know tr
but what is '\verb|\|000'? And the use of |\|?
The whole command according to the document is
cat /proc/$$/environ | tr '\verb|\|000' '\verb|\|\n'
which is supposed to put each variable it shows on a separate line.

"Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery
trial which is to try you, as though some strange
thing happened unto you; But rejoice, inasmuch as ye
are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his
glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with
exceeding joy." I Peter 4:12,13
