uc EXPR

uc

Returns an uppercased version of EXPR. This is the internal function implementing the \U escape in double-quoted strings. It does not attempt to do titlecase mapping on initial letters. See for that.

If EXPR is omitted, uses $_.

This function behaves the same way under various pragma, such as in a locale, as does.
