iscntrl, iswcntrl, _iscntrl_l, _iswcntrl_l

Determines whether an integer represents a control character.

int iscntrl( 
   int c 
);
int iswcntrl( 
   wint_t c 
);
int _iscntrl_l( 
   int c,
   _locale_t locale
);
int _iswcntrl_l( 
   wint_t c,
   _locale_t locale
);
c

Integer to test

locale

The locale to use.

Each of these routines returns nonzero if c is a particular representation of a control character. iscntrl returns a nonzero value if c is a control character (0x00 – 0x1F or 0x7F). iswcntrl returns a nonzero value if c is a control wide character. Each of these routines returns 0 if c does not satisfy the test condition.

The versions of these functions that have the _l suffix use the locale parameter that's passed in instead of the current locale. For more information, see Locale.

The behavior of iscntrl and _iscntrl_l is undefined if c is not EOF or in the range 0 through 0xFF, inclusive. When a debug CRT library is used and c is not one of these values, the functions raise an assertion.
