ISWALPHA(3P)               POSIX Programmer's Manual              ISWALPHA(3P)



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

NAME
       iswalpha - test for an alphabetic wide-character code

SYNOPSIS
       #include <wctype.h>

       int iswalpha(wint_t wc);


DESCRIPTION
       The  iswalpha() function shall test whether wc is a wide-character code representing a character of class alpha
       in the program's current locale; see the Base Definitions volume of IEEE Std 1003.1-2001, Chapter 7, Locale.

       The wc argument is a wint_t, the value of which the application shall ensure is a  wide-character  code  corre-
       sponding  to  a valid character in the current locale, or equal to the value of the macro WEOF. If the argument
       has any other value, the behavior is undefined.

RETURN VALUE
       The iswalpha() function shall return non-zero if wc is an alphabetic wide-character code; otherwise,  it  shall
       return 0.

ERRORS
       No errors are defined.

       The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES
       None.

APPLICATION USAGE
       To ensure applications portability, especially across natural languages, only this function and those listed in
       the SEE ALSO section should be used for classification of wide-character codes.

RATIONALE
       None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
       None.
