This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual. The Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may not be implemented on Linux.
 

NAME

wctype.h — wide-character classification and mapping utilities

SYNOPSIS

#include <wctype.h>

DESCRIPTION

Some of the functionality described on this reference page extends the ISO C standard. Applications shall define the appropriate feature test macro (see the System Interfaces volume of POSIX.1‐2008, Section 2.2, The Compilation Environment) to enable the visibility of these symbols in this header.
The <wctype.h> header shall define the following types:
wint_t
As described in <wchar.h>.
wctrans_t
A scalar type that can hold values which represent locale-specific character mappings.
wctype_t
As described in <wchar.h>.
The <wctype.h> header shall define the locale_t type as described in <locale.h>.
The <wctype.h> header shall define the following macro:
WEOF
As described in <wchar.h>.
For all functions described in this header that accept an argument of type wint_t, the value is representable as a wchar_t or equals the value of WEOF. If this argument has any other value, the behavior is undefined.
The behavior of these functions shall be affected by the LC_CTYPE category of the current locale.
Inclusion of the <wctype.h> header may make visible all symbols from the headers <ctype.h>, <stdarg.h>, <stddef.h>, <stdio.h>, <stdlib.h>, <string.h>, <time.h>, and <wchar.h>.
The following shall be declared as functions and may also be defined as macros. Function prototypes shall be provided for use with ISO C standard compilers.

int iswalnum_l(wint_t, locale_t);
int iswalpha(wint_t);
