NAME
       toascii - convert character to ASCII

SYNOPSIS
       #include <ctype.h>

       int toascii(int c);

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       toascii(): _XOPEN_SOURCE
           || /* Glibc since 2.19: */ _DEFAULT_SOURCE
           || /* Glibc versions <= 2.19: */ _SVID_SOURCE || _BSD_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION
       toascii()  converts c to a 7-bit unsigned char value that fits into the
       ASCII character set, by clearing the high-order bits.

RETURN VALUE

CONFORMING TO
       SVr4,  BSD,  POSIX.1-2001.   POSIX.1-2008  marks toascii() as obsolete,
       noting that it cannot be used portably in a localized application.

BUGS
       Many people will be unhappy if you use this  function.   This  function
       will convert accented letters into random characters.
