    Use toupper in <ctype.h> to convert a single character to uppercase, and tolower to convert a single character to lowercase. Loop through the inputted string and do this for each character, and you've got it done.

    Yes...but is there a way to convert whole strings(it'd probably be faster)?

    You're not using strings, you're using char arrays.
