std::iswalpha: std::iswalpha

NAME

std::iswalpha - std::iswalpha

Synopsis


Defined in header <cwctype>
int iswalpha( std::wint_t ch );


Checks if the given wide character is an alphabetic character, i.e. either an uppercase letter (ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ), a lowercase letter (abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz) or any alphabetic character specific to the current locale.
If the value of ch is neither representable as a wchar_t nor equal to the value of the macro WEOF, the behavior is undefined.

Parameters


ch - wide character

Return value


Non-zero value if the wide character is a alphabetic character, 0 otherwise.

Notes


ISO_30112 specifies which Unicode characters are include in POSIX alpha category.

Example


// Run this code


  #include <iostream>
  #include <cwctype>
  #include <clocale>


  int main()
  {
      wchar_t c = L'\u0b83'; // Tamil sign Visarga ('ஃ')


      std::cout << std::hex << std::showbase << std::boolalpha;
      std::cout << "in the default locale, iswalpha(" << (std::wint_t)c << ") = "
                << (bool)std::iswalpha(c) << '\n';
      std::setlocale(LC_ALL, "en_US.utf8");
      std::cout << "in Unicode locale, iswalpha(" << (std::wint_t)c << ") = "
                << (bool)std::iswalpha(c) << '\n';
  }

Output:


  in the default locale, iswalpha(0xb83) = false
  in Unicode locale, iswalpha(0xb83) = true
