Using Tim Charron's Win32 port of grep for CMD32.
The first dir/b below returns the filenames of all* files with both 
upper and lower case letters in the filenames.
The second dir/b is piped through grep with a regex to that passes only 
filenames that have at least one uppercase character.

dir/b<ENTER>
