[procedure] symbol->string symbol
In R5RS, if symbol is originated from a literal expression or from the read procedure, the implementation may fold the case of alphabetic characters in the symbol name to its preferred standard case.
(symbol->string 'aBc) => abc or ABC ;; R5RS (symbol->string 'aBc) => aBc ;; R6RS
In R6RS, case folding is off by default. (The implementation may provide case folding mode. A token #!fold-case? may be used in the source to show it should be read in case folding mode.)
