Description:
        The case modification won't work with pattern.
        I have a simple script a.sh, please see below:

        #! /bin/bash
        var="abcabc"
        echo "var: ${var}"
        echo "replace the leading \"ab\" to uppercase: ${var^ab}" # expect to 
get "ABcabc" ?
        echo "replace all the \"ab\" to uppercase: ${var^^ab}"    # expect to 
get "ABcABc" ?

        echo "replace the first \"a\" to uppercase: ${var^a}"
        echo "replace all \"a\" to uppercase: ${var^^a}"

        Then the result is:

        address@hidden:~/shell$ ./a.sh
        var: abcabc
        replace the leading "ab" to uppercase: abcabc   --> incorrect
        replace all the "ab" to uppercase: abcabc           --> incorrect 
        replace the first "a" to uppercase: Abcabc              --> correct
        replace all "a" to uppercase: AbcAbc                    --> correct
