tolower - transliterate uppercase characters to lowercase
int tolower(int c);
The tolower() function has 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() represents an uppercase letter, and there exists a corresponding lowercase letter (as defined by character type information in the program locale category LC_CTYPE ), the result shall be the corresponding lowercase letter. All other arguments in the domain are returned unchanged.
Upon successful completion, tolower() shall return the lowercase letter corresponding to the argument passed; otherwise, it shall return the argument unchanged.
No errors are defined.
