My version is attached, includes bugfix, some improvements from your
version, still room for improvments.

It doesnt process quoted chars, it does handle eof string.

Configurable to be simple with just the -t option, but only saves 500 bytes.

Doesnt try to support the -p option as its broken anyway.

The -r option isnt supported, its not in the posix standard and i dont
see why its needed, if there is no input why run the command to begin
with ?
