the bracketed version works for me, too. But maybe such a range is wrong 
for different locales anyway? ([A-Z] in file patterns on my linux 
machine also match lower case letters except "a").

I'm quite confused by the various ways of doing such a trivial 
transformation (using perl, sed, tr and what not.) and then still having 
it wrong for certain machines or environments.
