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".lowercase() 

The latter results in "my new title".

The trailing parentheses may be omitted:


Functionally equivalent to lowercase().

If $MyString is "Hello World":

$MyString = $MyString.lowercase; 

$MyString is set to "hello world".

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

$MyList = $MyList.lowercase; 

… giving "ant;bee;cow".
