Changing Case of File Contents?

» close window

The Question is:

Entire document was created in upper case and need to change to lower case.

The Answer is :

  Use a DCL command procedure that opens the file, reads a record, runs
  the text through f$edit specifying LOWERCASE, writes the record, then
  loops back and reads the next record until End Of File is reached.
  Use a text editor?  With EDIT/EVE, for instance:
  With LSE:
  With EDIT/EDT:
    C (to get into screen mode, if needed)
  There are undoubtedly many other ways.
