ISALNUM(3)						   BSD Library Functions Manual 						ISALNUM(3)

NAME
isalnum -- alphanumeric character test
LIBRARY
Standard C Library (libc, -lc)
SYNOPSIS
#include <ctype.h> int isalnum(int c); int isalnum_l(int c, locale_t loc);
DESCRIPTION
The isalnum() function tests for any character for which isalpha(3) or isdigit(3) is true. The value of the argument must be representable as an unsigned char or the value of EOF. In the ASCII character set, this includes the following characters (with their numeric values shown in octal): 060 ``0'' 061 ``1'' 062 ``2'' 063 ``3'' 064 ``4'' 065 ``5'' 066 ``6'' 067 ``7'' 070 ``8'' 071 ``9'' 101 ``A'' 102 ``B'' 103 ``C'' 104 ``D'' 105 ``E'' 106 ``F'' 107 ``G'' 110 ``H'' 111 ``I'' 112 ``J'' 113 ``K'' 114 ``L'' 115 ``M'' 116 ``N'' 117 ``O'' 120 ``P'' 121 ``Q'' 122 ``R'' 123 ``S'' 124 ``T'' 125 ``U'' 126 ``V'' 127 ``W'' 130 ``X'' 131 ``Y'' 132 ``Z'' 141 ``a'' 142 ``b'' 143 ``c'' 144 ``d'' 145 ``e'' 146 ``f'' 147 ``g'' 150 ``h'' 151 ``i'' 152 ``j'' 153 ``k'' 154 ``l'' 155 ``m'' 156 ``n'' 157 ``o'' 160 ``p'' 161 ``q'' 162 ``r'' 163 ``s'' 164 ``t'' 165 ``u'' 166 ``v'' 167 ``w'' 170 ``x'' 171 ``y'' 172 ``z'' The isalnum_l() function takes an explicit locale argument, whereas the isalnum() function uses the current global or per-thread locale.
RETURN VALUES
The isalnum() function returns zero if the character tests false and returns non-zero if the character tests true.
COMPATIBILITY
The 4.4BSD extension of accepting arguments outside of the range of the unsigned char type in locales with large character sets is considered obsolete and may not be supported in future releases. The iswalnum() function should be used instead.
SEE ALSO
ctype(3), isalpha(3), isdigit(3), iswalnum(3), xlocale(3), ascii(7)
STANDARDS
The isalnum() function conforms to ISO/IEC 9899:1990 (``ISO C90''). The isalnum_l() function conforms to IEEE Std 1003.1-2008 (``POSIX.1'').
