       toascii - convert character to ASCII

SYNOPSIS

       #include <ctype.h>

       int toascii(int c);

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       toascii(): _XOPEN_SOURCE
           || /* Glibc since 2.19: */ _DEFAULT_SOURCE
           || /* Glibc versions <= 2.19: */ _SVID_SOURCE || _BSD_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION

       toascii()  converts  c  to  a 7-bit unsigned char value that fits into the ASCII character
       set, by clearing the high-order bits.

       letters into random characters.
