       wctype.h - wide-character classification and mapping utilities

       #include <wctype.h>

       Some  of  the  functionality  described on this reference page extends the ISO C standard.
       Applications shall define the appropriate feature test macro (see  the  System  Interfaces
       volume  of  IEEE Std 1003.1-2001,  Section 2.2, The Compilation Environment) to enable the
       visibility of these symbols in this header.

       The <wctype.h> header shall define the following types:

       wint_t As described in <wchar.h> .

	      A scalar type that can hold values which represent locale-specific  character  map-

	      As described in <wchar.h> .

       The  following  shall be declared as functions and may also be defined as macros. Function
       prototypes shall be provided.

	      int	iswalnum(wint_t);
	      int	iswalpha(wint_t);
	      int	iswblank(wint_t);
	      int	iswcntrl(wint_t);
	      int	iswdigit(wint_t);
	      int	iswgraph(wint_t);
	      int	iswlower(wint_t);
	      int	iswprint(wint_t);
	      int	iswpunct(wint_t);
	      int	iswspace(wint_t);
	      int	iswupper(wint_t);
	      int	iswxdigit(wint_t);
	      int	iswctype(wint_t, wctype_t);
	      wint_t	towctrans(wint_t, wctrans_t);
	      wint_t	towlower(wint_t);
	      wint_t	towupper(wint_t);
	      wctrans_t wctrans(const char *);
	      wctype_t	wctype(const char *);

       The <wctype.h> header shall define the following macro name:

       WEOF   Constant expression of type wint_t that is returned by  several  MSE  functions  to
	      indicate end-of-file.

       For  all  functions  described  in this header that accept an argument of type wint_t, the
       value is representable as a wchar_t or equals the value of WEOF. If this argument has  any
       other value, the behavior is undefined.

       The  behavior of these functions shall be affected by the LC_CTYPE category of the current

       Inclusion of the  <wctype.h>  header  may  make	visible  all  symbols  from  the  headers
       <ctype.h>,  <stdarg.h>,	<stddef.h>,  <stdio.h>,  <stdlib.h>,  <string.h>,  <time.h>,  and
