Returns an uppercased version of EXPR. This is the internal function implementing the \U escape in double-quoted strings. Respects current LC_CTYPE locale if use locale in force. See perllocale. (It does not attempt to do titlecase mapping on initial letters. See ucfirst() for that.)

If EXPR is omitted, uses $_.
