Determines whether character is a graphical character, a display character, a punctuation character, or a space character.

int _ismbcgraph(
   unsigned int c 
);
int _ismbcgraph_l(
   unsigned int c,
   _locale_t locale 
);
int _ismbcprint(
   unsigned int c 
);
int _ismbcprint_l(
   unsigned int c,
   _locale_t locale
);
int _ismbcpunct(
   unsigned int c
);
int _ismbcpunct_l(
   unsigned int c,
   _locale_t locale
);
int _ismbcspace(
   unsigned int c 
);
int _ismbcspace_l(
   unsigned int c,
   _locale_t locale
);

c

Character to be determined.

locale

Locale to use.

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.

The versions of these functions are identical, except that the ones that have the _l suffix use the locale that's passed in for their locale-dependent behavior, instead of the current locale. For more information, see Locale.

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

_ismbcgraph

Graphic

Returns nonzero if and only if c is a single-byte representation of any ASCII or katakana printable character except a white space ( ).

_ismbcprint

Printable

Returns nonzero if and only if c is a single-byte representation of any ASCII or katakana printable character including a white space ( ).

_ismbcpunct

Punctuation

Returns nonzero if and only if c is a single-byte representation of any ASCII or katakana punctuation character.

_ismbcspace

White space

Returns nonzero if and only if c is a white-space character: c=0x20 or 0x09<=c<=0x0D.
