ISASCII(3)               BSD Library Functions Manual               ISASCII(3)

NAME
     isascii -- test for ASCII character

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <ctype.h>

     int
     isascii(int c);

DESCRIPTION
     The isascii() function tests for an ASCII character, which is any
     character with a value in the range from 0 to 127, inclusive.

     The isascii() is defined on all integer values.

SEE ALSO

     isgraph(3), islower(3), isprint(3), ispunct(3), isspace(3), isupper(3),
     isxdigit(3), stdio(3), toascii(3), tolower(3), toupper(3), ascii(7)

STANDARDS
     The isascii() function conforms to X/Open Portability Guide Issue 4
     (``XPG4'') and IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (``POSIX.1'').  The IEEE Std
     1003.1-2008 (``POSIX.1'') revision however marked it as obsolete, noting
     that isascii() cannot be used portably in a localized application.
