DEFINITION: Line and character displacements into
the editing buffer can be specified
before a given command is executed in
conjunction with this character (see
Section 5.3).
LITERAL: In pattern parameters of command lines
only if it follows one or two signed
numbers at the beginning of the
parameter, <n>+1 symbols represent <n>
symbols. [!79]
%% multi-cap delimiter (double "percent" signs)
DEFINITION: In an input string or a single line of
Input Mode, all alphabetic characters
are capitalized between a beginning and
ending %%; if the second %% is left off,
the remainder of the string or line is
capitalized; if the second %% is left
off in OREAD or Swift Input Mode, then
the input is capitalized until another
%% is encountered on another line or
until Input Mode is exited (see Section
2). In Command Mode, if %% is
specified, a carriage return implies a
closing %% if it wasn't specified.
