Case Conversion

Draft MDC Standard

7.1.3.1.6 Case Conversion

^$Character ( charsetexpr , expr1 V "LOWER" ) = expr2 V algoref

This optional node identifies the algorithm for the conversion of character strings whereby upper-case characters are converted to lower-case ones.

^$Character ( charsetexpr , expr1 V "UPPER" ) = expr2 V algoref

This optional node identifies the algorithm for the conversion of character strings whereby lower-case characters are converted to upper-case ones.

Editor's note:
Suggest to include an example similar in hte previous clauses:

The result of a conversion to lower or upper case for a character set may be evaluated by executing the expression:

("S result="_lower_"(string)")
("S result="_upper_"(string)")
