The lcfirst() function returns a string, with the first character in lower case - only if the first character is alphabetic.
echo lcfirst("Java is OK."); => // java is OK.
my_string = "Java is OK."; puts my_string[0,1].downcase + my_string[1..-1]; => # java is OK.

Returns the argument provided with all alphabetic characters converted to lowercase.
echo strtolower('Ruby is pure OO'); // => ruby is pure oo
puts 'Ruby is pure OO'.downcase; # => ruby is pure oo
