isprint, iswprint, _isprint_l, _iswprint_l

Determines whether an integer represents a printable character.

int isprint(
   int c 
);
int iswprint(
   wint_t c 
);
int _isprint_l(
   int c,
   _locale_t locale
);
int _iswprint_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 printable character. isprint returns a nonzero value if c is a printable character—this includes the space character (0x20 – 0x7E). iswprint returns a nonzero value if c is a printable wide character—this includes the space wide character. Each of these routines returns 0 if c does not satisfy the test condition.

The result of the test condition for these functions depends on the LC_CTYPE category setting of the locale; see setlocale, _wsetlocale for more information. The versions of these functions that do not have the _l suffix use the current locale for any locale-dependent behavior; the versions that do have the _l suffix are identical except that they use the locale that's passed in instead. For more information, see Locale.

The behavior of isprint and _isprint_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.
