CAPs Finder

This tool locates capital letters in a plain text document, either either located at a specified web address or uploaded from the user’s files.

Note: If an HTML or XML text is submitted, the tool will strip all tags and process it as plain text.

Please click the ? buttons at the bottom right of each set of options for more information on that set.

For further information on this tool, please see the TADA Wiki's CAPs Finder entry here. A glossary of terms is also available here.
