      I suspect I'm lucky. I see few such cases.

      Which app?

      (I just put in a feature request for a case conversion finction in
      DroidEdit. It's intended to be a code editor and has syntax
      highlighting for a slew of languages, so I was surprised there
      apparently *wasn't* a case conversion function in it.)

      I don't expect to see anything as convenient as the pedit tool on
      Android. Pedit acted much like TSRs under MSDOS, where they were
      resident and could be popped up over running applications. Android
      doesn't work that way. I'd settle for being able to copy such stuff
      to the internal clipboard, paste it from there into an editor to do
      the conversion, and copy and past from there into whatever the target
      destination was.
