Manual Section... (3) - page: iswalnum

 

NAME

iswalnum - test for alphanumeric wide character  

SYNOPSIS

#include <wctype.h>

int iswalnum(wint_t wc);
 

DESCRIPTION

The iswalnum() function is the wide-character equivalent of the isalnum(3) function. It tests whether wc is a wide character belonging to the wide-character class "alnum".

The wide-character class "alnum" is a subclass of the wide-character class "graph", and therefore also a subclass of the wide-character class "print".

Being a subclass of the wide-character class "print", the wide-character class "alnum" is disjoint from the wide-character class "cntrl".

Being a subclass of the wide-character class "graph", the wide-character class "alnum" is disjoint from the wide-character class "space" and its subclass "blank".

The wide-character class "alnum" is disjoint from the wide-character class "punct".

The wide-character class "alnum" is the union of the wide-character classes "alpha" and "digit". As such, it also contains the wide-character class "xdigit".

The wide-character class "alnum" always contains at least the letters 'A' to 'Z', 'a' to 'z' and the digits '0' to '9'.  

RETURN VALUE

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

CONFORMING TO

C99.  

NOTES

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