# _ismbchira, _ismbchira_l, _ismbckata, _ismbckata_l

Visual Studio 2005

Code Page 932 Specific functions.

```
int _ismbchira(
unsigned int c
);
int _ismbchira_l(
unsigned int c,
_locale_t locale
);
int _ismbckata(
unsigned int c
);
int _ismbckata_l(
unsigned int c,
_locale_t locale
);
```

#### Parameters

c

Character to be tested.

locale

Locale to use.

## Return Value

Each of these routines returns a nonzero value if the character satisfies the test condition or 0 if it does not. If c <= 255 and there is a corresponding _ismbb routine (for example, _ismbcalnum corresponds to _ismbbalnum), the result is the return value of the corresponding _ismbb routine.

## Remarks

Each of these functions tests a given multibyte character for a given condition.

The versions of these functions with the _l suffix are identical except that they use the locale passed in instead of the current locale for their locale-dependent behavior.
