RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for tolower (redhat section 3)

TOUPPER(3)				      Linux Programmer's Manual 				   TOUPPER(3)

NAME
toupper, tolower - convert letter to upper or lower case
SYNOPSIS
#include <ctype.h> int toupper(int c); int tolower(int c);
DESCRIPTION
toupper() 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 behaviour of these functions is undefined.
RETURN VALUE
The value returned is that of the converted letter, or c if the conversion was not possible.
CONFORMING TO
ANSI C, BSD 4.3
BUGS
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 corresponding uppercase equivalent; the German sharp s is one example.
