Capitalization

Epsilon has commands that allow you to change the case of words. Each travels forward, looking for the end of a word, and changes the case of the letters it travels past. Thus, if you give these commands while inside a word, only the rest of the word potentially changes case.

The Alt-L key, lowercase-word, turns all the characters it passes to lower case. The Alt-U key, uppercase-word, turns them all to upper case. The Alt-C key, capitalize-word, capitalizes a word by making the first letter it travels past upper case, and all the rest lower case. All these commands position point after the word operated upon.

For example, the Alt-L command would turn "wOrd" into "word". The Alt-U command would turn it into "WORD", and the Alt-C command would turn it into "Word".

These commands operate on the highlighted region, if there is one. If there is no highlighted region, the commands operate on the next word and move past it, as described above. The commands work on both conventional and rectangular regions.

Standard bindings:

  Alt-C  capitalize-word
 Alt-L  lowercase-word
 Alt-U  uppercase-word
