In the version of ZWEI on system 27.84 nws, with microcode 667, on LISP Machine Two:
It would be helpful if somewhere (perhaps as a case of Various Quantities)
ZWEI knew about the kind of object I shall call a Cap-word: a word
which is separated by either the usual word breaks *or* by a transition\n from lower to upper case (but not vice versa). Thus the string
"GrossRidiculousTexMacroName" is one word, but five Cap-words.
Some programming languages conventionally spell variable names this
way, particularly TEX (which allows only letters in macro names
of more than one character). It would be useful to have a way
of getting around within such names.
