Does anybody know how to convert an entire string to lowercase?  Would I have to run it through a for loop or will tolower() change the entire string.  I can seem to get my prog to compiile no matter what I do....


             length = endPos - startPos;
             word = word.substr(startPos,length);
            
            
            for(int j = 0; j < word.length(); j++)
            {
                  word = word.tolower(word[j]);      
            }
            
            cout << word << endl;
