SYNOPSIS

#include <wctype.h>

wint_t
towctrans(wint_t wc, wctrans_t desc);

wctrans(const char *charclass);

DESCRIPTION

The wctrans() function returns a value of type wctrans_t which represents the requested wide character mapping operation and may be used as the second argument for calls to towctrans().

mytowupper(wint_t wc)
{
        return (towctrans(wc, wctrans("toupper")));
}
