NAME

iswcntrl - test for control wide character  

SYNOPSIS

#include <wctype.h>

int iswcntrl(wint_t wc);
 

DESCRIPTION

The iswcntrl() function is the wide-character equivalent of the iscntrl(3) function. It tests whether wc is a wide character belonging to the wide-character class "cntrl".

The wide-character class "cntrl" is disjoint from the wide-character class "print" and therefore also disjoint from its subclasses "graph", "alpha", "upper", "lower", "digit", "xdigit", "punct".

For an unsigned char c, iscntrl(c) implies iswcntrl(btowc(c)), but not vice versa.  

RETURN VALUE

The iswcntrl() function returns nonzero if wc is a wide character belonging to the wide-character class "cntrl". Otherwise, it returns zero.  

ATTRIBUTES

 

Multithreading (see pthreads(7))

The iswcntrl() function is thread-safe with exceptions. It can be safely used in multithreaded applications, as long as setlocale(3) is not called to change the locale during its execution.  

CONFORMING TO

C99.  

NOTES

The behavior of iswcntrl() depends on the LC_CTYPE category of the current locale.
