Changing Text >
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
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.
