    about toupper()

    Hello, I'm wondering if there is a library with a toupper() kind of function that can handle string insted of char?

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <ctype.h>
    using namespace std;
    
    void toUpperCase(char*);
    
    int main() {
        char str[80];
        
        cout << "Enter something: "; 
        cin.getline(str, 80);
        
        toUpperCase(str);
        
        cin.get();
        return 0;
    }
    
    
    void toUpperCase(char* s) {
        int count;
        while(*s) {
            *s = toupper(*s);
            s++;
            count++;
        }
        s -= count;
        cout << s;
    }
    this is what I've got now, but I want to use string instead

    as I remember it I could use ASCI values of the upper case letters to convert, but that's sounds tiresome. Why reinvent something that maybe already exists, right?

    Indeed there is: boost string algorithms which includes algorithms for case conversion.
    I might be wrong.

    Thank you, anon. You sure know how to recognize different types of trees from quite a long way away.
    Quoted more than 1000 times (I hope).

    std::transform() for a one liner conversion.
