Hi everyone. Having some issues with my program I need to make for an assignment. There is a part that needs to be able to look for upper-case letters within a html tag ( which is located in a text file) It then has to say where in the file the error is ( which line) And also output the corrected code into a new file ( without changing the first file) My code is below; but I really am lost with figuring out how to do this. If anyone could give me some pointers it would be much appreciated.

Cheers

If this is the same assignment as I am doing and you are at the same place I am, then have a look at your semester one notes section IV processing textual data. Look for isupper this may solve the finding uppercase issue.
