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

NAME

     iswlower - test for lowercase wide character

SYNOPSIS

     #include <wctype.h>
     int iswlower(wint_t wc);

DESCRIPTION

     The  iswlower()  function  is  the  wide-character  equivalent  of  the
     islower(3) function.  It tests whether wc is a wide character belonging
     to the wide-character class "lower".
     The  wide-character  class  "lower" is a subclass of the wide-character
     class "alpha", and therefore also  a  subclass  of  the  wide-character
     class  "alnum",  of  the  wide-character class "graph" and of the wide-
     character class "print".
     Being a subclass of the wide-character class "print", the  wide-charac-
     ter class "lower" is disjoint from the wide-character class "cntrl".
     Being  a subclass of the wide-character class "graph", the wide-charac-
     ter class "lower" is disjoint from the wide-character class "space" and
     its subclass "blank".
     Being  a subclass of the wide-character class "alnum", the wide-charac-
     ter class "lower" is disjoint from the wide-character class "punct".
     Being a subclass of the wide-character class "alpha", the  wide-charac-
     ter class "lower" is disjoint from the wide-character class "digit".
     The  wide-character class "lower" contains at least those characters wc
     which are equal to towlower(wc) and different from towupper(wc).
     The wide-character class "lower" always contains at least  the  letters
     'a' to 'z'.

RETURN VALUE

     The  iswlower()  function  returns  nonzero  if  wc is a wide character
     belonging to the wide-character class "lower".  Otherwise,  it  returns
     zero.

CONFORMING TO

     POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008, C99.

NOTES

     The behavior of iswlower() depends on the LC_CTYPE category of the cur-
     rent locale.
     This  function is not very appropriate for dealing with Unicode charac-
     ters, because Unicode knows about three cases: upper, lower  and  title
     case.
