Rename files from UPPERCASE to Proper Case

I have about 1000 files that are all in UPPERCASE.pdf format and need to have them in ProperCase.pdf format.

Can i get some suggestions on how to do this?

Do you have actual filenames to work with?

windows doesn't use case
i.e. dir c:\test\SERVICE_LOG.txt
notepad c:\test\SerVice_Log.Txt will open the file, Linux systems on the other hand are case sensitive.

Windows doesn't care about case but I do, and so do the users who don't want to have their file names YELLINGATTHEM.pdf. so i would like a script, an app , or anything that solves the problem that the question poses.

If there are not spaces in the filename, you may need some kind of program that can extract words by reading each character and comparing potential words against a database. Still, it may be difficult. The program would need to decide the ending and beginning of words. e.g. your example ProperCase.pdf. How would it decide between ProperCase, ProPerCase?

If there are spaces, you could probably use regex to find the words.
