x86 pentium NASM lowercase to uppercase !

Hi....i've been trying for days to complete a program that asks for a word input and prints it out in capitals.I searched in the forums but i only found TASM assembly...i need NASM...

Here is the program,i've managed to make it print out 1-the first- character (e.g. if i write "hello" it will print out "h"...i need it to print out "HELLO"):

; Objective: To print the capital equivalent of the entered character(s).
; Input: Requests the character(s) from keyboard.
; Output: Prints the ASCII character of the input in capital letters.

%include "asm_io.inc"
segment .data
char_prompt db "Please input character(s): ",0
out_msg1 db "The equivalent of '",0
out_msg2 db "' in capital letter(s) is ",0

segment .text
global _asm_main
enter 0,0

mov EAX, char_prompt ;EAX=please input characters %
call print_string ;print char_prompt
call read_char ;read character fro user input
mov EBX, EAX ;copy EAX to EBX
call print_nl ;print new line

mov EAX, out_msg1
call print_string
mov EAX, EBX
call print_char
mov EAX, out_msg2
call print_string
mov EAX, EBX
cmp AL, 'a' ;
jl not_lowercase ; if lower than "a" jump to not_lowercase
cmp AL, 'z' ;
jg not_lowercase ; if greater than "z" jump to not_lowercase
add AL, 'A' - 'a' ; convert to uppercase
call print_char
sub AL, 20
loop process_char

mov EAX, 0

Hope it's not too much to ask...thanks in advance.
