ISPUNCT(3) Library Functions Manual ISPUNCT(3)

NAME

ispunct, ispunct_lpunctuation single-byte character test

SYNOPSIS

#include <ctype.h>
int
ispunct(int c);
int
ispunct_l(int c, locale_t locale);

DESCRIPTION

The ispunct() and ispunct_l() test for any punctuation characters.
In the C locale, the complete list of punctuation characters is:
!"#$%&'()*+,-./:;<=>?@[\]^_`{|}~
These are all characters for which isgraph(3) is true but isalnum(3) is not. OpenBSD always uses the C locale for these functions, ignoring the global locale, the thread-specific locale, and the locale argument.

RETURN VALUES

These functions return zero if the character tests false or non-zero if the character tests true.

ENVIRONMENT

On systems supporting non-ASCII single-byte character encodings, results of these functions may differ, and the results of ispunct() may depend on the LC_CTYPE locale(1).

SEE ALSO

isalnum(3), isalpha(3), isascii(3), isblank(3), iscntrl(3), isdigit(3), isgraph(3), islower(3), isprint(3), isspace(3), isupper(3), iswpunct(3), isxdigit(3), stdio(3), toascii(3), tolower(3), toupper(3), ascii(7)

STANDARDS

The ispunct() function conforms to ANSI X3.159-1989 (“ANSI C89”), and ispunct_l() to IEEE Std 1003.1-2008 (“POSIX.1”).

HISTORY

The ispunct() function first appeared in Version 7 AT&T UNIX, and ispunct_l() has been available since OpenBSD 6.2.

CAVEATS

The argument c must be EOF or representable as an unsigned char; otherwise, the result is undefined.
