smallcaps is a pre-processor library for LaTeX files.
The library comes with an executable that makes most
functionality accessible through a command line interface.
The pre-processor formats sequences of uppercase letters
\small macro or whatever you configure.
Uppercase letters at the beginning of sentences are not
formatted. Other formatting conditions can be configured by
The executable can be configured through its command line arguments as well as through TeX comments. In the default configuration, lesscase does not change the content of any macro argument or environment (different from document). More and less restrictive configuration profiles can be activated and adapted. Configurations can be stored and restored at any time, even while processing the input file.

A simple program can be defined as
import Data.Default ( def ) import Text.SmallCaps ( smallcaps ) import Text.SmallCaps.Config ( defaultProfile ) main = smallcaps def defaultProfile
This is virtually all the code that is necessary to
implement the executable
lesscase. Have a look in the
source of the executable
twocase which only formats
sequences of two or more uppercase letters. It is a good
reference for understanding the API changes that took
place between the revisions 0.5 and 0.6.
