ISLOWER(3)			   BSD Library Functions Manual 		       ISLOWER(3)

NAME
     islower -- lower-case character test

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <ctype.h>

     int
     islower(int c);

DESCRIPTION
     The islower() function tests for any lower-case letter for which none of iscntrl(3),
     isdigit(3), ispunct(3), or isspace(3) is true.  In the ``C'' locale, islower() returns true
     only for the characters defined as lower-case letters.

RETURN VALUES
     The islower() function returns zero if the character tests false and returns non-zero if the
     character tests true.

SEE ALSO
     ctype(3), isalnum(3), isalpha(3), isascii(3), isblank(3), iscntrl(3), isdigit(3),
     isgraph(3), isprint(3), ispunct(3), isspace(3), isupper(3), isxdigit(3), stdio(3),
     toascii(3), tolower(3), toupper(3), ascii(7)

STANDARDS
     The islower() function conforms to ANSI X3.159-1989 (``ANSI C89'').

CAVEATS
     The argument to islower() must be EOF or representable as an unsigned char; otherwise, the
     behavior is undefined.  See the CAVEATS section of ctype(3) for more details.
