Return Value

_ismbbkpunct returns a nonzero value if the integer c is a non-ASCII punctuation symbol, or 0 if it is not. For example, in code page 932 only, _ismbbkpunct tests for katakana punctuation. _ismbbkpunct uses the current locale for any locale-dependent character settings. _ismbbkpunct_l is identical except that it uses the locale that's passed in. For more information, see Locale.
