PATTERN insensitive

Love the app - use it so much.

Please could you add a /PATTERN option which is NOT case sensitive - I get music and image files which are a mix of lowercase and uppercase extensions (and sometimes a mix of that!!) Accordingly you have to run the command at least twice to capture all the possibilities (or convert all the extensions to a single-case first).

It would be super helpful if there was a /PATTERN which was case insensitive.

/PATTERN is case sensitive.

Though it accepts multiple (space separated) values.

So you could do something like: /PATTERN:".JPG .jpg"
& that might help.

Also you could set the entire case of the filenames first (CHANGECASE, CHANGEEXTCASE), which might then allow you simplify your /PATTERN ?

(Though an insensitive switch to PATTERN would be better.)
