Cell Name Mapping

(int) SetMapToLower(state, rw)
This function sets a flag which causes upper case cell names to be mapped to lower case when reading, writing, or format converting archive files. The first argument is a boolean value which if nonzero indicates case conversion will be applied, and if zero case conversion will be disabled.

The second argument is a boolean value that if zero indicates that case conversion will be applied when reading or format converting archive files, and nonzero will apply case conversion when writing an archive file from memory.

Within Xic, this flag can also be set from the panels available from the Convert Menu. The internal effect is to set or clear the InToLower or OutToLower variables. The return value is the previous setting of the variable.
