towlower - transliterate uppercase wide-character code to lowercase
wint_t towlower(wint_t wc);
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 corresponding 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-character 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 arguments in the domain are returned unchanged.
Upon successful completion, towlower() shall return the lowercase letter corresponding to the argument passed; otherwise, it shall return the argument unchanged.
No errors are defined.
