True, but the reason I was asking because I saw a colleague writing a
case statement like this:

case "$cmd" in
  [tT][rR][iI][mM])
    ... trim a log file ...
  [dD][eE][lL][eE][tT][eE])
    ... delete a log file...

Now don't tell me that looks pretty :)
Anyway, maybe something like a \i switch somewhere would make a nice
entry for the wishlist?

Kind regards,
Kars Meyboom.
