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

NAME
       towlower - convert a wide character to lowercase

SYNOPSIS
       #include <wctype.h>

       wint_t towlower(wint_t wc);

DESCRIPTION
       The towlower function is the wide-character equivalent of the tolower function. If wc is a
       wide character, it is converted to lowercase.  Characters  which  do  not  have	case  are
       returned unchanged.  If wc is WEOF, WEOF is returned.

RETURN VALUE
       The towlower function returns the lowercase equivalent of wc, or WEOF if wc is WEOF.

CONFORMING TO
       ISO/ANSI C, UNIX98

SEE ALSO
       towupper(3), towctrans(3), iswlower(3)

NOTES
       The behaviour of towlower depends on the LC_CTYPE category of the current locale.

       This function is not very appropriate for dealing with Unicode characters, because Unicode
       knows about three cases: upper, lower and title case.
