54/3
function To_Lower (Item : Wide_Character) return Wide_Character;
55/3
Returns the Simple Lowercase Mapping as defined by documents referenced in the note in Clause 1 of ISO/IEC 10646:2011 of the Wide_Character designated by Item. If the Simple Lowercase Mapping does not exist for the Wide_Character designated by Item, then the value of Item is returned.
56/3
function To_Lower (Item : Wide_String) return Wide_String;
57/3
Returns the result of applying the To_Lower conversion to each Wide_Character element of the Wide_String designated by Item. The result is the null Wide_String if the value of the formal parameter is the null Wide_String. The lower bound of the result Wide_String is 1.
58/3
function To_Upper (Item : Wide_Character) return Wide_Character;
59/3
Returns the Simple Uppercase Mapping as defined by documents referenced in the note in Clause 1 of ISO/IEC 10646:2011 of the Wide_Character designated by Item. If the Simple Uppercase Mapping does not exist for the Wide_Character designated by Item, then the value of Item is returned.
60/3
function To_Upper (Item : Wide_String) return Wide_String;
61/3
Returns the result of applying the To_Upper conversion to each Wide_Character element of the Wide_String designated by Item. The result is the null Wide_String if the value of the formal parameter is the null Wide_String. The lower bound of the result Wide_String is 1.

Implementation Advice

62/3
 The string returned by Character_Set_Version should include either “10646:” or “Unicode”.
NOTES
63/3
8  The results returned by these functions may depend on which particular version of the 10646 standard is supported by the implementation (see 2.1).
64/3
9  The case insensitive equality comparison routines provided in A.4.10, “String Comparison” are also available for wide strings (see A.4.7).
