It depends on how you are accessing the Unix application. Are you accessing the application thru a Window's terminal emulator or are you from an actual terminal?

You could turn caps lock off thru the Window's registry although I wouldn't do that. It's discussed here:

Also, sometime ago, I saw a window's freeware program from OrionSoft that controls the caps lock:

Sorry, I have no experrience with it.

Second, you can try controlling the terminal on the unix side. If you are using the X environment, the xmod command can disable caps lock.

Otherwise, terminal control is done either thru TERMCAP or TERMINFO. TERMCAP is a file and TERMINFO is a database.

Most modern applications use TERMINFO. Changing TERMINFO requires knowing what you are doing. Changing TERMINFO is done with the Terminfo Compiler, tic, command.

And, No, I have not researched how you might change TERMINFO.
