Hello world -

Laurie asked last Friday:

I already replied directly to her last week.  However, so many of you seem to
be missing the boat on the EASIEST way to do what she is asking that I thought
I should also post the answer to the group.  There is no need to transfer the
file to any other platform; no need to write a script program; no need to use
anything other than the same GCG package that she created the sequence with.

Merely run the GCG utility REformat with its /UPPer option; that's all it
takes! (VMS conventions listed above, caps are minimum command required.)

						Good day all, Steve T
