NAME

iswdigit - test for decimal digit wide character  

SYNOPSIS

#include <wctype.h>

int iswdigit(wint_t wc);
 

DESCRIPTION

The iswdigit() function is the wide-character equivalent of the isdigit() function. It tests whether wc is a wide character belonging to the wide character class "digit".

The wide character class "digit" is a subclass of the wide character class "xdigit", and therefore also a subclass of the wide character class "alnum", of the wide character class "graph" and of the wide character class "print".

Being a subclass of the wide character class "print", the wide character class "digit" is disjoint from the wide character class "cntrl".

Being a subclass of the wide character class "graph", the wide character class "digit" is disjoint from the wide character class "space" and its subclass "blank".

Being a subclass of the wide character class "alnum", the wide character class "digit" is disjoint from the wide character class "punct".

The wide character class "digit" is disjoint from the wide character class "alpha" and therefore also disjoint from its subclasses "lower", "upper".

The wide character class "digit" always contains exactly the digits '0' to '9'.  

RETURN VALUE

The iswdigit() function returns non-zero if wc is a wide character belonging to the wide character class "digit". Otherwise it returns zero.  

CONFORMING TO

C99.

NOTES

The behaviour of iswdigit() depends on the LC_CTYPE category of the current locale.
