Return Value

islower returns a non-zero value if c is a lowercase character (a – z). iswlower returns a non-zero value if c is a wide character that corresponds to a lowercase letter, or if c is one of an implementation-defined set of wide characters for which none of iswcntrl, iswdigit, iswpunct, or iswspace is true. Each of these routines returns 0 if c does not satisfy the test condition.

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