int _ismbchira_l(

Character to be tested.

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.

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

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