Context: See this variable in context in the source code References: This variable is used as follows: * DETOK2 calls DTW6 * MT13 calls DTW6 * MT2 calls DTW6

This variable is used to indicate whether lower case is currently enabled. It has two values: * %10000000 = lower case is enabled * %00000000 = lower case is not enabled The default value is %00000000 (lower case is not enabled). The flag is set to %10000000 (lower case is enabled) by jump token 13 {lower case}, which calls routine MT10 to change the value of DTW6. The flag is set to %00000000 (lower case is not enabled) by jump token 1, {all caps}, and jump token 1, {sentence case}, which call routines MT1 and MT2 to change the value of DTW6.
