NAME

iswalpha - test for alphabetic wide character  

SYNOPSIS

#include <wctype.h>

int iswalpha(wint_t wc);
 

DESCRIPTION

The iswalpha() function is the wide-character equivalent of the isalpha(3) function. It tests whether wc is a wide character belonging to the wide-character class "alpha".

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

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

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

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

The wide-character class "alpha" is disjoint from the wide-character class "digit".

The wide-character class "alpha" contains the wide-character classes "upper" and "lower".

The wide-character class "alpha" always contains at least the letters 'A' to 'Z' and 'a' to 'z'.  

RETURN VALUE

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

ATTRIBUTES

 

Multithreading (see pthreads(7))

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