RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for wctype (redhat section 3)

WCTYPE(3)			    Linux Programmer's Manual				WCTYPE(3)

NAME
       wctype - wide character classification

SYNOPSIS
       #include <wctype.h>

       wctype_t wctype(const char *name);

DESCRIPTION
       The  wctype_t  type  represents	a property which a wide character may or may not have. In
       other words, it represents a class of wide characters.  This type's nature is  implementa-
       tion  dependent,  but  the  special value (wctype_t)0 denotes an invalid property. Nonzero
       wctype_t values can be passed to the iswctype function to actually test	whether  a  given
       wide character has the property.

       The  wctype function returns a property, given by its name. The set of valid names depends
       on the LC_CTYPE category of the current locale, but the following names are valid  in  all
       locales.
	 "alnum" - realizes the isalnum classification function
	 "alpha" - realizes the isalpha classification function
	 "blank" - realizes the isblank classification function
	 "cntrl" - realizes the iscntrl classification function
	 "digit" - realizes the isdigit classification function
	 "graph" - realizes the isgraph classification function
	 "lower" - realizes the islower classification function
	 "print" - realizes the isprint classification function
	 "punct" - realizes the ispunct classification function
	 "space" - realizes the isspace classification function
	 "upper" - realizes the isupper classification function
	 "xdigit" - realizes the isxdigit classification function

RETURN VALUE
       The  wctype  function  returns  a  property  descriptor if the name is valid. Otherwise it
       returns (wctype_t)0.

CONFORMING TO
       ISO/ANSI C, UNIX98

SEE ALSO
       iswctype(3)

NOTES
       The behaviour of wctype depends on the LC_CTYPE category of the current locale.
