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 non-zero 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.
