    // traverse each character and convert
    // lower case to upper and upper to lower
    for (int i = 0; i < wcslen(string); i++) {
        if (iswctype(string[i], first))
            string[i] = towctrans(string[i], wctrans("toupper"));
        else if (iswctype(string[i], second))
            string[i] = towctrans(string[i], wctrans("tolower"));
    }
  
    // print the string after transformation
    wcout << L"After transformation -> " << string << endl;
  
    return 0;
}
