Just out of interest, why?

The only reason I can imagine is that you have inherited a legacy
filesystem where people have been using haphazard file-naming
conventions and so you have a lot of files with unpredictable case in
their names. If so, it might be esier in the long run to write a perl
script to rename the files. Usually, switching everything to lower-case
is the least common denominator.

If, on the other hand, you've unilaterally decided that the web would be
a better place If wE coUld aLL tyPe anY way WE Like and are on a crusade
to improve it, then I wish you luck!
