Before glibc 2.10:
_GNU_SOURCE
 

DESCRIPTION

The towupper() function is the wide-character equivalent of the toupper(3) function. If wcis a lowercase wide character, and there exists an uppercase equivalent in the current locale, it returns the uppercase equivalent of wc. In all other cases, wcis returned unchanged.

The towupper_l() function performs the same task, but performs the conversion based on the character type information in the locale specified by locale. The behavior of towupper_l() is undefined if localeis the special locale object LC_GLOBAL_LOCALE(see duplocale(3)) or is not a valid locale object handle.

The argument wcmust be representable as a wchar_tand be a valid character in the locale or be the value WEOF.  

RETURN VALUE

If wcwas convertible to uppercase, towupper() returns its uppercase equivalent; otherwise it returns wc.  

VERSIONS

The towupper_l() function first appeared in glibc 2.3.

CONFORMING TO

towupper(): C99, POSIX.1-2001 (XSI); present as an XSI extension in POSIX.1-2008, but marked obsolete.

towupper_l(): POSIX.1-2008.  

NOTES

The behavior of these functions depends on the LC_CTYPEcategory of the locale.

These functions are not very appropriate for dealing with Unicode characters, because Unicode knows about three cases: upper, lower and title case.
