isascii(), isascii_l()

tests if character is a 7-bit US-ASCII character 

Function


SYNOPSIS

#include <ctype.h>

int isascii(int c);

int isascii_l(int c, locale_t locale);


DESCRIPTION

The isascii() and isasciii_l() functions test for a 7-bit US-ASCII character.


PARAMETERS

c 

Is any integer value.

locale 

Is a locale_t perhaps returned by newlocale() or LC_GLOBAL_LOCALE or 0 for the current thread locale set with uselocale().


RETURN VALUES

The isascii() and isascii_l() functions return non-zero if c is a 7-bit US-ASCII character code between 0 and octal 0177 inclusive; otherwise returns zero.

isascii_l() behaves in the same way as isascii() without the _l suffix, but uses the specified locale rather than the global or per-thread locale. A locale_t is returned by newlocale().


CONFORMANCE

The isascii() function conforms to UNIX 98.


MULTITHREAD SAFETY LEVEL

MT-Safe, with exceptions.

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

The function isascii_l() is MT-Safe as long as no thread calls freelocale() on locale while this function is executing.


PORTING ISSUES

None.
