Using the standard toolset in no way has anything to do with using C, C++ and Perl over Ada. It has to do with using a standard tool like "tr" instead of writing and publishing extra tools for any small task and publishing it to Freshmeat to top it off.
What is the point of writing, documenting, and publishing a tool which functionality can be reproduced by one single, short line of shell script?
Why not just use "tr"?
The command "tr A-Za-z B-ZAb-za" achieves the same thing...
People really needs to learn to use the standard toolset that comes with practically every Linux distro in existence and most Unix versions too...
