ISCNTRL(3P)		   POSIX Programmer's Manual		   ISCNTRL(3P)

       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.

       iscntrl, iscntrl_l — test for a control character

       #include <ctype.h>

       int iscntrl(int c);
       int iscntrl_l(int c, locale_t locale);

       For iscntrl(): The functionality described on this  reference  page  is
       aligned	with the ISO C standard. Any conflict between the requirements
       described here and the ISO C standard is unintentional. This volume  of
       POSIX.1‐2008 defers to the ISO C standard.

       The iscntrl() and iscntrl_l() functions shall test whether c is a char‐
       acter of class cntrl in the current locale, or  in  the	locale	repre‐
       sented  by  locale,  respectively;  see	the Base Definitions volume of
       POSIX.1‐2008, Chapter 7, Locale.

       The c argument is a type int, the value of which the application	 shall
       ensure is a character representable as an unsigned char or equal to the
       value of the macro EOF. If the argument has any other value, the behav‐
       ior is undefined.

       The  behavior is undefined if the locale argument to iscntrl_l() is the
       special locale object LC_GLOBAL_LOCALE or is not a valid locale	object

       The iscntrl() and iscntrl_l() functions shall return non-zero if c is a
       control character; otherwise, they shall return 0.

       No errors are defined.

       The following sections are informative.


       To ensure applications  portability,  especially	 across	 natural  lan‐
       guages,	only  these functions and the functions in the reference pages
       listed in the SEE ALSO section should be used for character classifica‐



       isalnum(),   isalpha(),	isblank(),  isdigit(),	isgraph(),  islower(),
       isprint(), ispunct(), isspace(),	 isupper(),  isxdigit(),  setlocale(),
