Definitions for "MAKEUCASE"
This is a user-variable which controls whether WORD will convert all alphabetic characters to upper-case. Normally, all dictionary headers are created by WORD. FIND for reasons of speed is CASE-SENSITIVE. Therefore, all words, by convention, are converted to upper-case as they are moved to HERE, by WORD. The programmer, should he/she wish to receive lower-case strings at HERE, may either set (and restore when done) the contents of MAKEUCASE himself, or use the supplied version LWORD, which does this automatically.
