Copyrights on such things are nonsense. If that were possible, no
programming would be possible any more.
On the other hand, I think
%Let StringToModify1 = This_Is_The_String_To_Modify1 ;
%Let ModifiedString1 = %SysFunc( TranWrd( &StringToModify1 , _ , %Str
( ) ) ) ;
%Put ModifiedString1 = &ModifiedString1 ;
is not under that copyright? So we can continue...
I hope that nobody has the copyright on breathing in and out so I can
continue doing that...
