PROLOG
       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.

NAME
       iswalnum - test for an alphanumeric wide-character code

SYNOPSIS
       #include <wctype.h>

       int iswalnum(wint_t wc);

DESCRIPTION
       The  iswalnum()	function  shall  test  whether wc is a wide-character code representing a
       character of class alpha or digit in the program's current locale; see  the  Base  Defini-
       tions volume of IEEE Std 1003.1-2001, Chapter 7, Locale.

       The  wc	argument  is a wint_t, the value of which the application shall ensure is a wide-
       character code corresponding to a valid character in the current locale, or equal  to  the
       value of the macro WEOF. If the argument has any other value, the behavior is undefined.

RETURN VALUE
       The  iswalnum()	function  shall  return  non-zero if wc is an alphanumeric wide-character
       code; otherwise, it shall return 0.

ERRORS
       No errors are defined.

       The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES
       None.

APPLICATION USAGE
       To ensure applications portability, especially across natural languages, only  this  func-
       tion  and  those listed in the SEE ALSO section should be used for classification of wide-
       character codes.

RATIONALE
       None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
       None.
