isprint()

tests if character is printable 

Function


SYNOPSIS

#include <ctype.h>

int isprint(int c);


DESCRIPTION

The isprint() function tests for any printing character, including the space character, that is, any character for which isalnum() or ispunct() is true or the space character.

The behavior of the isprint() function is affected by the current locale. To modify the behavior, change the LC_CTYPE category in setlocale(), that is, setlocale(LC_CTYPE, newlocale). In the C locale or in a locale where character type information is not defined, characters are classified according to the rules of the U.S. ASCII 7-bit coded character set.


PARAMETERS

c 

Is an integer whose value is representable as an unsigned char, or the value of the macro EOF.


RETURN VALUES

The isprint() function returns non-zero for true and zero for false. If the parameter is not in the domain of the function, the return result is undefined.


CONFORMANCE

ANSI/ISO 9899-1990.


MULTITHREAD SAFETY LEVEL

MT-Safe, with exceptions.

This function is MT-Safe as long as no thread calls setlocale() while this function is executing.


PORTING ISSUES

None.
