std::iswcntrl: std::iswcntrl

NAME

std::iswcntrl - std::iswcntrl

Synopsis


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


Checks if the given wide character is a control character, i.e. codes 0x00-0x1F and 0x7F and any control characters 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 control character, zero otherwise.

Notes


ISO 30112 defines POSIX control characters as Unicode characters U+0000..U+001F, U+007F..U+009F, U+2028, and U+2029 (Unicode classes Cc, Zl, and Zp)

Example


// Run this code


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


  int main()
  {
      wchar_t c = L'\u2028'; // the Unicode character "line separator"


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

Output:


  in the default locale, iswcntrl(0x2028) = false
  in Unicode locale, iswcntrl(0x2028) = true
