*current-case-mode*

The value of this variable is the keyword denoting the current case mode. The value of this variable is changed by set-case-mode and should not be set in any other way (modifying the value of this variable directly does not change the case mode and has undefined consequences, most of them bad). Its initial value depends on how Lisp was installed. Some pre-built images (mlisp and mlisp8) use :case-sensitive-lower and others (alisp and alisp8) use :case-insensitive-upper. The value may also be specified when an image is built using build-lisp-image or generate-application.

See case.htm for general information on case in Allegro CL.
