TOUPPER(3) Linux Programmer's Manual TOUPPER(3)NAME
toupper, tolower - convert letter to upper or lower case
int toupper(int c);
int tolower(int c);
DESCRIPTIONtoupper() converts the letter c to upper case, if possible.
tolower() converts the letter c to lower case, if possible.
If c is not an unsigned char value, or EOF, the behavior of these func‐
tions is undefined.
The value returned is that of the converted letter, or c if the conver‐
sion was not possible.
C89, C99, 4.3BSD.
The details of what constitutes an uppercase or lowercase letter depend
on the current locale. For example, the default "C" locale does not
know about umlauts, so no conversion is done for them.
In some non-English locales, there are lowercase letters with no corre‐
sponding uppercase equivalent; the German sharp s is one example.
