Are you saying my code did not comply to the standards now?
My code wasn't intended to be a general solution for converting characters
And my code contained no tricks it simply OR'ed a lowercase ASCII character
with 32 to get the uppercase equivelent.

The topic of this discussion is <ctype.h> tolower() . The original question
had been answered numerous times and my post was not trying to re-answer the
original question my post was expanding the discussion. If your idea of a
discussion is simply asking a question or answering one then you are
obviously of very low intelligence.
