TOWLOWER(P)			    POSIX Programmer's Manual			      TOWLOWER(P)

NAME
       towlower - transliterate uppercase wide-character code to lowercase

SYNOPSIS
       #include <wctype.h>

       wint_t towlower(wint_t wc);

DESCRIPTION
       The  towlower() function has as a domain a type wint_t, the value of which the application
       shall ensure is a character representable as a wchar_t, and a wide-character  code  corre-
       sponding  to a valid character in the current locale or the value of WEOF. If the argument
       has any other value, the behavior is undefined. If the argument of  towlower()  represents
       an  uppercase wide-character code, and there exists a corresponding lowercase wide-charac-
       ter code (as defined by character type information in the program locale category LC_CTYPE
       ),  the	result shall be the corresponding lowercase wide-character code.  All other argu-
       ments in the domain are returned unchanged.

RETURN VALUE
       Upon successful completion, towlower() shall return the lowercase letter corresponding  to
       the argument passed; otherwise, it shall return the argument unchanged.

ERRORS
       No errors are defined.
