iscntrl - test for a control character
int iscntrl(int c);
[CX] 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 IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 defers to the ISO C standard.
The iscntrl() function shall test whether c is a character of class cntrl in the program's current locale; see the Base Definitions volume of IEEE Std 1003.1-2001, 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 behavior is undefined.
The iscntrl() function shall return non-zero if c is a control character; otherwise, it shall return 0.
No errors are defined.
To ensure applications portability, especially across natural languages, only this function and those listed in the SEE ALSO section should be used for character classification.
