_ismbcgraph, _ismbcgraph_l, _ismbcprint, _ismbcprint_l, _ismbcpunct, _ismbcpunct_l, _ismbcblank, _ismbcblank_l, _ismbcspace, _ismbcspace_l

Determines whether character is a graphical character, a display character, a punctuation character, or a space character.

This API cannot be used in applications that execute in the Windows Runtime. For more information, seeCRT functions not supported with /ZW.

Syntax

int _ismbcgraph(  
   unsigned int c   
);  
int _ismbcgraph_l(  
   unsigned int c,  
   _locale_t locale   
);  
int _ismbcprint(  
   unsigned int c   
);  
int _ismbcprint_l(  
   unsigned int c,  
   _locale_t locale  
);  
int _ismbcpunct(  
   unsigned int c  
);  
int _ismbcpunct_l(  
   unsigned int c,  
   _locale_t locale  
);  
int _ismbcblank(  
   unsigned int c   
);  
int _ismbcblank_l(  
   unsigned int c,  
   _locale_t locale  
);  
int _ismbcspace(  
   unsigned int c   
);  
int _ismbcspace_l(  
   unsigned int c,  
   _locale_t locale  
);  

Parameters

c
Character to be determined.

locale
Locale to use.

Return Value

Each of these routines returns a nonzero value if the character satisfies the test condition, or 0 if it does not. If c <= 255 and there is a corresponding _ismbb routine (for example, _ismbcalnum corresponds to _ismbbalnum), the result is the return value of the corresponding _ismbb routine.

The versions of these functions are identical, except that the ones that have the _l suffix use the locale that's passed in for their locale-dependent behavior, instead of the current locale. For more information, see Locale.

Remarks

Each of these functions tests a given multibyte character for a given condition.

Routine Test condition Code page 932 example
_ismbcgraph Graphic Returns nonzero if and only if c is a single-byte representation of any ASCII or katakana printable character except a white space ( ).
_ismbcprint Printable Returns nonzero if and only if c is a single-byte representation of any ASCII or katakana printable character including a white space ( ).
_ismbcpunct Punctuation Returns nonzero if and only if c is a single-byte representation of any ASCII or katakana punctuation character.
_ismbcblank Space or horizontal tab Returns nonzero if and only if c is a space or horizontal tab character: c=0x20 or c=0x09.
_ismbcspace White space Returns nonzero if and only if c is a white-space character: c=0x20 or 0x09<=c<=0x0D.
