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.
