TOWLOWER(3) Library Functions Manual TOWLOWER(3)

towlower, towlower_l, towupper, towupper_lwide-character case letter conversion utilities

#include <wctype.h>

towlower(wint_t wc);

towlower_l(wint_t wc, locale_t locale);

towupper(wint_t wc);

towupper_l(wint_t wc, locale_t locale);

The () and towlower_l() functions convert an upper-case wide character to the corresponding lower-case letter. The () and towupper_l() functions convert a lower-case wide character to the corresponding upper-case letter.

The functions () and () use the specified locale, whereas towlower() and towupper() use the thread-specific locale set with uselocale(3), falling back to the global locale set with setlocale(3).

These functions return the corresponding character, if any. Otherwise, wc is returned unchanged.
