set text to lowercase...

set text to lowercase...

(OP)
...but in one line after a ; and if ; is not first line char. for example:
LDA COLORS ; DO A COLOR
how to set "DO A COLOR" to lowercase?

RE: set text to lowercase...

(OP)
thanks.
i can test it later...
just one thing, because i want to be sure, if there is a text after ; as first line char, this text is converted to lowercase?
because i need to avoid this.
just convert if ; isn't first line char.
thanks again :)

RE: set text to lowercase...

CODE

awk -F ';' -vOFS=';' '$2 && substr($0,1,1)!=";"{$2=tolower($2)}1' /input/file
