int _ismbclower(  
   unsigned int c   
);  
int _ismbclower_l(  
   unsigned int c,  
   _locale_t locale   
);  
int _ismbcupper(  
   unsigned int c   
);  
int _ismbcupper_l(  
   unsigned int c,  
   _locale_t locale  
);  

Parameters

c
Character to be tested.

locale
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.

RoutineTest conditionCode page 932 example
_ismbclowerLowercase alphabeticReturns nonzero if and only if c is a single-byte representation of an ASCII lowercase English letter: 0x61<=c<=0x7A.
_ismbclower_lLowercase alphabeticReturns nonzero if and only if c is a single-byte representation of an ASCII lowercase English letter: 0x61<=c<=0x7A.
_ismbcupperUppercase alphabeticReturns nonzero if and only if c is a single-byte representation of an ASCII uppercase English letter: 0x41<=c<=0x5A.
_ismbcupper_lUppercase alphabeticReturns nonzero if and only if c is a single-byte representation of an ASCII uppercase English letter: 0x41<=c<=0x5A.
