ARGUMENTS

       int ch (in)             The Tcl_UniChar to be converted.

       char *str (in/out)      Pointer to UTF-8 string to be converted in place.

DESCRIPTION

       The first three routines convert the case of individual Unicode characters:

       If  ch  represents  a  lower-case  character, Tcl_UniCharToUpper returns the corresponding
       upper-case character.  If no upper-case character is defined,  it  returns  the  character
       unchanged.

       If  ch  represents  an  upper-case character, Tcl_UniCharToLower returns the corresponding
       lower-case character.  If no lower-case character is defined,  it  returns  the  character
       unchanged.

       If  ch  represents  a  lower-case  character, Tcl_UniCharToTitle returns the corresponding
       title-case character.  If no title-case character is defined, it returns the corresponding
       upper-case  character.   If  no  upper-case character is defined, it returns the character
       unchanged.  Title-case is defined for a small number of characters that have  a  different
       appearance when they are at the beginning of a capitalized word.

       The next three routines convert the case of UTF-8 strings in place in memory:

       Tcl_UtfToUpper  changes  every UTF-8 character in str to upper-case.  Because changing the
       case of a character may change its  size,  the  byte  offset  of  each  character  in  the
       resulting string may differ from its original location.  Tcl_UtfToUpper writes a null byte
       at the end of the converted string.  Tcl_UtfToUpper returns the new length of  the  string
       in bytes.  This new length is guaranteed to be no longer than the original string length.

       Tcl_UtfToLower  is the same as Tcl_UtfToUpper except it turns each character in the string
       into its lower-case equivalent.

       Tcl_UtfToTitle is the same as Tcl_UtfToUpper except it turns the first  character  in  the
       string  into  its title-case equivalent and all following characters into their lower-case
       equivalents.

BUGS

       At this time, the case conversions are only defined for the ISO8859-1 characters.  Unicode
       characters above 0x00ff are not modified by these routines.
