ISALPHA(3) Library Functions Manual ISALPHA(3)

alphabetic character test

#include <ctype.h>
isalpha(int c);

The isalpha() function tests for any character for which isupper(3) or islower(3) is true and for which none of iscntrl(3), isdigit(3), ispunct(3), or isspace(3) is true. In the C locale, isalpha() returns true only for the characters for which isupper(3) or islower(3) is true.

The isalpha() function returns zero if the character tests false or non-zero if the character tests true.
