PROLOG         top

       This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual.  The Linux
       implementation of this interface may differ (consult the
       corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or
       the interface may not be implemented on Linux.

NAME         top

       tolower, tolower_l — transliterate uppercase characters to lowercase

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <ctype.h>

       int tolower(int c);
       int tolower_l(int c, locale_t locale);

DESCRIPTION         top

       For tolower(): The functionality described on this reference page is
       aligned with the ISO C standard. Any conflict between the
       requirements described here and the ISO C standard is unintentional.
       This volume of POSIX.1‐2008 defers to the ISO C standard.

       The tolower() and tolower_l() functions have as a domain a type int,
       the value of which is representable as an unsigned char or the value
       of EOF. If the argument has any other value, the behavior is
       undefined. If the argument of tolower() or tolower_l() represents an
       uppercase letter, and there exists a corresponding lowercase letter
       as defined by character type information in the current locale or in
       the locale represented by locale, respectively (category LC_CTYPE),
       the result shall be the corresponding lowercase letter. All other
       arguments in the domain are returned unchanged.

       The behavior is undefined if the locale argument to tolower_l() is
       the special locale object LC_GLOBAL_LOCALE or is not a valid locale
       object handle.

RETURN VALUE         top

       Upon successful completion, the tolower() and tolower_l() functions
       shall return the lowercase letter corresponding to the argument
       passed; otherwise, they shall return the argument unchanged.
