-varcase _all-

It's in SSC:

    "'VARCASE': module to toggle the case of variable names / varcase toggles
    the case of variable names, from upper to lower / or from lower to upper,
    whichever is appropriate. It checks to / see whether toggling the case
    will create an unused variable / name, and handles such conflicts"
