int _ismbcl1(
   unsigned int c 
int _ismbcl2(
   unsigned int c 


Character to be tested.

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.


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

Routine Test condition (code page 932 only)
_ismbcl0 JIS non-Kanji: 0x8140<=c<=0x889E.
_ismbcl1 JIS level-1: 0x889F<=c<=0x9872.
_ismbcl2 JIS level-2: 0x989F<=c<=0xEA9E.

_ismbcl0, _ismbcl1, and _ismbcl2 check that the specified value c matches the test conditions described above, but do not check that c is a valid multibyte character. If the lower byte is in the ranges 0x00 – 0x3F, 0x7F, or 0xFD – 0xFF, these functions return a nonzero value, indicating that the character satisfies the test condition. Use _ismbbtrail to test whether the multibyte character is defined.
