   These  functions  check  whether  c,  which  must  have the value of an
   unsigned char or EOF, falls into a certain character class according to
   the  specified  locale.   The functions without the "_l" suffix perform
   the check based on the current locale.

   The functions with the "_l" suffix  perform  the  check  based  on  the
   locale  specified  by  the locale object locale.  The behavior of these
   functions  is  undefined  if  locale  is  the  special  locale   object
   LC_GLOBAL_LOCALE  (see  duplocale(3))  or  is not a valid locale object

   The list below explains the operation of the functions without the "_l"
   suffix;  the  functions  with  the "_l" suffix differ only in using the
   locale object locale instead of the current locale.

          checks for  an  alphanumeric  character;  it  is  equivalent  to
          (isalpha(c) || isdigit(c)).

          checks  for an alphabetic character; in the standard "C" locale,
          it  is  equivalent  to  (isupper(c)  ||  islower(c)).   In  some
          locales,  there may be additional characters for which isalpha()
          is true—letters which are neither uppercase nor lowercase.

          checks whether c is a 7-bit unsigned char value that  fits  into
          the ASCII character set.

          checks for a blank character; that is, a space or a tab.

          checks for a control character.

          checks for a digit (0 through 9).

          checks for any printable character except space.

          checks for a lowercase character.

          checks for any printable character including space.

          checks  for  any  printable character which is not a space or an
          alphanumeric character.

          checks for white-space  characters.   In  the  "C"  and  "POSIX"
          locales,  these  are:  space,  form-feed ('\f'), newline ('\n'),
          carriage return ('\r'), horizontal tab ('\t'), and vertical  tab

          checks for an uppercase letter.

          checks for hexadecimal digits, that is, one of
          0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 a b c d e f A B C D E F.


   The  values  returned  are  nonzero  if  the character c falls into the
   tested class, and zero if not.

   C89 specifies isalnum(), isalpha(),  iscntrl(),  isdigit(),  isgraph(),
   islower(),  isprint(), ispunct(), isspace(), isupper(), and isxdigit(),
   but not isascii() and isblank().   POSIX.1-2001  also  specifies  those
   functions, and also isascii() (as an XSI extension) and isblank().  C99
   specifies all of the preceding functions, except isascii().

   POSIX.1-2008 marks isascii() as obsolete, noting that it cannot be used
   portably in a localized application.

   POSIX.1-2008    specifies    isalnum_l(),   isalpha_l(),   isblank_l(),
   iscntrl_l(),  isdigit_l(),   isgraph_l(),   islower_l(),   isprint_l(),
   ispunct_l(), isspace_l(), isupper_l(), and isxdigit_l().

   isascii_l() is a GNU extension.


   The standards require that the argument c for these functions is either
   EOF or a value that is representable in the type unsigned char.  If the
   argument c is of type char, it must be cast to unsigned char, as in the
   following example:

       char c;
       res = toupper((unsigned char) c);

   This is necessary because char may be the equivalent of signed char, in
   which  case a byte where the top bit is set would be sign extended when
   converting to int, yielding a  value  that  is  outside  the  range  of
   unsigned char.

   The  details  of  what  characters  belong to which class depend on the
   locale.  For example, isupper() will not recognize an A-umlaut  (Ä)  as
   an uppercase letter in the default C locale.
