    Default char (toUppercase?)

    is there any method that can check if a character is uppercase or lowercase?

    like the method in the String type? (toUpperCase()/toLowerCase());

    how should i make this ryt?

        private static BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in));
     
        public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
     
            String temp = "";
     
            System.out.print("Enter a word: ");
            String word = br.readLine();
     
            for (int x = 0; x <= word.length() - 1; x++) {
     
                temp = temp + word.charAt(x);
     
                // pseudocode:
                /**
                 * if the character at (x) is equal to uppercase,
                 * make it lower cased
                 */
     
                if (word.charAt(x) == Character.UPPERCASE_LETTER) {
     
                    Character.toLowerCase(word.charAt(x));
                }
            }
     
            System.out.println("All Are Lower Cased" + temp);
        }

    Whats the point in checking if its upper case? Just lower case all characters.

    Other than that you'd do something like this.

    if (Character.isUpperCase(word.charAt(x))) {
      // Do stuff here
    }

    // Json
