Parameters

str
String to capitalize.

locale
The locale to use.

Returns a pointer to the altered string. Because the modification is done in place, the pointer returned is the same as the pointer passed as the input argument. No return value is reserved to indicate an error.

The _strupr function converts, in place, each lowercase letter in str to uppercase. The conversion is determined by the LC_CTYPE category setting of the locale. Other characters are not affected. For more information on LC_CTYPE, see setlocale. The versions of these functions without the _l suffix use the current locale; the versions with the _l suffix are identical except that they use the locale passed in instead. For more information, see Locale.

_wcsupr and _mbsupr are wide-character and multibyte-character versions of _strupr. The argument and return value of _wcsupr are wide-character strings; those of _mbsupr are multibyte-character strings. These three functions behave identically otherwise.

If str is a null pointer, the invalid parameter handler is invoked, as described in Parameter Validation . If execution is allowed to continue, these functions return the original string and set errno to EINVAL.

In C++, these functions have template overloads that invoke the newer, secure counterparts of these functions. For more information, see Secure Template Overloads.
