SYNOPSIS


.In ctype.h int isalnum int c int isalnum_l int c locale_t loc

DESCRIPTION

The isalnum function tests for any character for which isalpha(3) or isdigit(3) is true. The value of the argument must be representable as an
.Vt unsigned char or the value of EOF.

In the ASCII character set, this includes the following characters (with their numeric values shown in octal):
060 ‘‘0’’      061 ‘‘1’’      062 ‘‘2’’      063 ‘‘3’’      064 ‘‘4’’
065 ‘‘5’’      066 ‘‘6’’      067 ‘‘7’’      070 ‘‘8’’      071 ‘‘9’’
101 ‘‘A’’      102 ‘‘B’’      103 ‘‘C’’      104 ‘‘D’’      105 ‘‘E’’
106 ‘‘F’’      107 ‘‘G’’      110 ‘‘H’’      111 ‘‘I’’      112 ‘‘J’’
113 ‘‘K’’      114 ‘‘L’’      115 ‘‘M’’      116 ‘‘N’’      117 ‘‘O’’
120 ‘‘P’’      121 ‘‘Q’’      122 ‘‘R’’      123 ‘‘S’’      124 ‘‘T’’
125 ‘‘U’’      126 ‘‘V’’      127 ‘‘W’’      130 ‘‘X’’      131 ‘‘Y’’
132 ‘‘Z’’      141 ‘‘a’’      142 ‘‘b’’      143 ‘‘c’’      144 ‘‘d’’
145 ‘‘e’’      146 ‘‘f’’      147 ‘‘g’’      150 ‘‘h’’      151 ‘‘i’’
152 ‘‘j’’      153 ‘‘k’’      154 ‘‘l’’      155 ‘‘m’’      156 ‘‘n’’
157 ‘‘o’’      160 ‘‘p’’      161 ‘‘q’’      162 ‘‘r’’      163 ‘‘s’’
164 ‘‘t’’      165 ‘‘u’’      166 ‘‘v’’      167 ‘‘w’’      170 ‘‘x’’
171 ‘‘y’’      172 ‘‘z’’                 
 

The isalnum_l function takes an explicit locale argument, whereas the isalnum function uses the current global or per-thread locale.

RETURN VALUES

The isalnum function returns zero if the character tests false and returns non-zero if the character tests true.

COMPATIBILITY

The BSD 4.4 extension of accepting arguments outside of the range of the
.Vt unsigned char type in locales with large character sets is considered obsolete and may not be supported in future releases. The iswalnum function should be used instead.

SEE ALSO

ctype(3), isalpha(3), isdigit(3), iswalnum(3), xlocale(3), ascii(7)

STANDARDS

The isalnum function conforms to -isoC. The isalnum_l function conforms to -p1003.1-2008.
