    mkdir lowercase UPPERCASE

    find -regex [a-z] -exec cp lowercase
    find -regex [A-Z] -exec cp UPPERCASE

    the best way to solve your problem is to write a script.
    write a bash script including these commands.
    give that script executable permission and then move it to /bin directory.
    check whether the script is executing or not by the ./scriptname
    then reboot and wola!!!! you have created a new command.
    now no need for the ./scriptname, you can just type the name in the command line and it will work as any command like ls or cp or clear, etc.
