Flash: I need to be able to translate characters

I need to be able to translate "a" to "k" or "4" to "q" and so on.

Is there an easy way to do this with actionscript?

Any help or advice would be great. I'm a perl guy, so if there is something similar to $line =~ tr/[1234567890]/[abcdefghij]/; that would be great :)

The swf file needs to be stand alone...   otherwise I'd use a perl script.

Thank you very much.

Best regards,

How do I implement that class? Where do I put the file, what code do I use and where?

Thank you very much.

Dr34m3r,

Get this file: http://www.jurjans.lv/flash/RegExp.zip
It has examples of use.

Include the class in the first frame (take care about path from your .fla to it):

#include "RegExp.as"

You'll also find a brief documentation at this page: http://www.jurjans.lv/flash/RegExp.html

But take a look at the sample - it has more then documentation.
