Returns the referenced String, transforming all uppercase letters to lowercase.

The function can be chained to both string data and to string literals:


"my new title".uppercase() 

The latter gives "MY NEW TITLE".

The trailing parentheses may be omitted:


Functionally equivalent to uppercase().

If $MyString is "hello world":

$MyString = $MyString.uppercase; 

$MyString is set to "HELLO WORLD".

The .uppercase() method may also be used on Lists or Sets. Consider "Ant;BEE;Cow":

$MyList = $MyList.uppercase; 

… giving "ANT;BEE;COW".
