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.
