The strtolower() function is used to convert a string into lowercase. This function takes a string as parameter and converts all the uppercase english alphabets present in the string to lowercase. All other numeric characters or special characters in the string remains unchanged.

Syntax:

string strtolower( $string )

Parameter: The only parameter to this function is a string that is to be converted to lower case.

Return value: This function returns a string in which all the alphabets are lower case.

Examples:



Input : $str  = "GeeksForGeeks"
        strtolower($str)
Output: geeksforgeeks

Input : $str  = "going BACK he SAW THIS 123$#%"
        strtolower($str)
Output: going back he saw this 123$#%
