iswascii(), iswscii_l()

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

Function


SYNOPSIS

#include <wctype.h>

int iswascii(wint_t wc);

int iswascii_l(wint_t wc, locale_t locale);


DESCRIPTION

The iswascii() function tests whether the specified wide character is a 7-bit US-ASCII character. The behavior of the iswascii() function is not affected by the current locale.

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


PARAMETERS

wc 

Is a wide character code corresponding to a valid character in the current locale or the value of the macro WEOF.

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 iswascii() and iswascii_l() functions return non-zero for true and zero for false. If the parameter is not in the domain of the function, the behavior is undefined.


CONFORMANCE
