[S] Changing case of variable names

Forgive what might seem a naive question, but is there an easy way of
changing the case (from lower to upper) of a large block of variable names.
I just received a data file that has about 200 variables all named using
lower case letters. This wouldn't be significant except that I have
another file with the same variables, all named in upper case. I plan to
append the files and since SPlus is sensitive to the case of the variable
names, all have to agree. I can do this one at a time in the data editor,
but haven't found a function that does this for an entire vector of
variable names.
