int _ismbchira(
   unsigned int c 
int _ismbckata(
   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)
_ismbchira Double-byte Hiragana: 0x829F<=c<=0x82F1.
_ismbckata Double-byte katakana: 0x8340<=c<=0x8396.
