Syntax CAPS
Location BeuleTools

After the command CAPS has been issued, any input from the keyboard via INPUT, INKEY$ etc. is translated into capital letters. CAPS simulates the use of the capslock key.


To ask the user for any keyboard input, for example a

password where this should be entered in capital letters:

100 CAPS
110 INPUT "Please enter password:"!pass$


Some old replacement keyboards use dirty tricks to engage capslock. If you are fed up with the original QL keyboard then ensure you get the latest release of a modern keyboard interface and an IBM-style keyboard. If you do not do this, then you may have to change to capslock mode with CAPS…


NOCAPS is self-explanatory.
