220.127.116.11.2.1 Local Case in Pathname Components
For the functions in Figure 18.104.22.168.2 Case in Pathname Components,
a value of :local for the :case argument
(the default for these functions)
indicates that the functions should receive and yield strings in component values
as if they were already represented according to the host file system's
convention for case.
If the file system supports both cases, strings given or received
as pathname component values under this protocol are to be used exactly
as written. If the file system only supports one case,
the strings will be translated to that case.
