Return Value

iscntrl returns a non-zero value if c is a control character (0x00 – 0x1F or 0x7F). iswcntrl returns a non-zero value if c is a control wide character. Each of these routines returns 0 if c does not satisfy the test condition.

The result of the test condition for the iscntrl function depends on the LC_CTYPE category setting of the current locale; see setlocale for more information. For iswcntrl, the result of the test condition is independent of locale.
