toascii(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE
DESCRIPTIONtoascii() converts c to a 7-bit unsigned char value that fits into the
ASCII character set, by clearing the high-order bits.
The value returned is that of the converted character.
SVr4, BSD, POSIX.1-2001. POSIX.1-2008 marks toascii() as obsolete,
noting that it cannot be use portably in a localized application.
Many people will be unhappy if you use this function. This function
will convert accented letters into random characters.
