std::iswcntrl

From cppreference.com
< cpp‎ | string‎ | wide
Defined in header <cwctype>
int iswcntrl( std::wint_t ch );

Checks if the given wide character is a control character, i.e. codes 0x00-0x1F and 0x7F and any control characters specific to the current locale.

If the value of ch is neither representable as a wchar_t nor equal to the value of the macro WEOF, the behavior is undefined.

Parameters

ch - wide character

Return value

Non-zero value if the wide character is a control character, zero otherwise.

Notes

ISO 30112 defines POSIX control characters as Unicode characters U+0000..U+001F, U+007F..U+009F, U+2028, and U+2029 (Unicode classes Cc, Zl, and Zp)

Example

#include <iostream>
#include <cwctype>
#include <clocale>
 
int main()
{
    wchar_t c = L'\u2028'; // the Unicode character "line separator" 
 
    std::cout << std::hex << std::showbase << std::boolalpha;
    std::cout << "in the default locale, iswcntrl(" << (std::wint_t)c << ") = "
              << (bool)std::iswcntrl(c) << '\n';
    std::setlocale(LC_ALL, "en_US.utf8");
    std::cout << "in Unicode locale, iswcntrl(" << (std::wint_t)c << ") = "
              << (bool)std::iswcntrl(c) << '\n';
}

Output:

in the default locale, iswcntrl(0x2028) = false
in Unicode locale, iswcntrl(0x2028) = true
