tolower, _tolower, towlower, _tolower_l, _towlower_l
Converts a character to lowercase.
int tolower( int c ); int _tolower( int c ); int towlower( wint_t c ); int _tolower_l( int c, _locale_t locale ); int _towlower_l( wint_t c, _locale_t locale );
Character to convert.
Locale to use for locale-specific translation.
Each of these routines converts a copy of c to lower case if the conversion is possible, and returns the result. There is no return value reserved to indicate an error.
Each of these routines converts a given uppercase letter to a lowercase letter if it is possible and relevant. The case conversion of towlower is locale-specific. Only the characters relevant to the current locale are changed in case. The functions without the _l suffix use the currently set locale. The versions of these functions that have the _l suffix take the locale as a parameter and use that instead of the currently set locale. For more information, see Locale.
