    Default strcoll(3) case sensitivity?

    Hi!

    On many unix systems, strcoll(3) is case insensitive for locales other than
    C/POSIX. Not so for FreeBSD. Just curious, is this a design decision or
    simply the lack of time and efforts to write the code for it?

    Regards,

    I wish I could find the POSIX docs for this, but sadly they don't seem to
    exists openly on the net?
