Return Value

isalnum returns a non-zero value if either isalpha or isdigit is true for c, that is, if c is within the ranges A – Z, a – z, or 0 – 9. iswalnum returns a non-zero value if either iswalpha or iswdigit is true for c. Each of these routines returns 0 if c does not satisfy the test condition.

The result of the test condition for the isalnum function depends on the LC_CTYPE category setting of the current locale; see setlocale for more information. For iswalnum, the result of the test condition is independent of locale.
