This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual. The Linux
implementation of this interface may differ (consult the
corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or
the interface may not be implemented on Linux.
For iswctype(): The functionality described on this reference page is
aligned with the ISO C standard. Any conflict between the
requirements described here and the ISO C standard is unintentional.
This volume of POSIX.1‐2008 defers to the ISO C standard.
The iswctype() and iswctype_l() functions shall determine whether the
wide-character code wc has the character class charclass, returning
true or false. The iswctype() and iswctype_l() functions are defined
on WEOF and wide-character codes corresponding to the valid character
encodings in the current locale, or in the locale represented by
locale, respectively. If the wc argument is not in the domain of the
function, the result is undefined. If the value of charclass is
invalid (that is, not obtained by a call to wctype() or charclass is
invalidated by a subsequent call to setlocale() that has affected
category LC_CTYPE) the result is unspecified.
The behavior is undefined if the locale argument to iswctype_l() is
the special locale object LC_GLOBAL_LOCALE or is not a valid locale
