|TOWLOWER(3)||Linux Programmer's Manual||TOWLOWER(3)|
wint_t towlower(wint_t wc); wint_t towlower_l(wint_t wc, locale_t locale);
Since glibc 2.10: _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 700 Before glibc 2.10: _GNU_SOURCE
The towlower_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 towlower_l() is undefined if locale is the special locale object LC_GLOBAL_LOCALE (see duplocale(3)) or is not a valid locale object handle.
The argument wc must be representable as a wchar_t and be a valid character in the locale or be the value WEOF.

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