ISPUNCT(3)	       FreeBSD Library Functions Manual		    ISPUNCT(3)

NAME
     ispunct --	punctuation character test

LIBRARY
     Standard C	Library	(libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <ctype.h>

     int
     ispunct(int c);

     int
     ispunct_l(int c, locale_t loc);

DESCRIPTION
     The ispunct() function tests for any printing character except for	space
     (`	') or a	character for which isalnum(3) is true.	 The value of the
     argument must be representable as an unsigned char	or the value of	EOF.

     In	the ASCII character set, this includes the following characters	(with
     their numeric values shown	in octal):

     041 ``!''	   042 ``"''	 043 ``#''     044 ``$''     045 ``%''
     046 ``&''	   047 ``'''	 050 ``(''     051 ``)''     052 ``*''
     053 ``+''	   054 ``,''	 055 ``-''     056 ``.''     057 ``/''
     072 ``:''	   073 ``;''	 074 ``<''     075 ``=''     076 ``>''
     077 ``?''	   100 ``@''	 133 ``[''     134 ``\''     135 ``]''
     136 ``^''	   137 ``_''	 140 ```''     173 ``{''     174 ``|''
     175 ``}''	   176 ``~''

     The ispunct_l() function takes an explicit	locale argument, whereas the
     ispunct() function	uses the current global	or per-thread locale.

RETURN VALUES
     The ispunct() and ispunct_l() functions return zero if the	character
     tests false and return non-zero if	the character tests true.

COMPATIBILITY
     The 4.4BSD	extension of accepting arguments outside of the	range of the
     unsigned char type	in locales with	large character	sets is	considered
     obsolete and may not be supported in future releases.  The	iswpunct()
     function should be	used instead.

SEE ALSO
     ctype(3), iswpunct(3), ascii(7)

STANDARDS
     The ispunct() function conforms to	ISO/IEC	9899:1990 (``ISO C90'').  The
     ispunct_l() function conforms to IEEE Std 1003.1-2008 (``POSIX.1'').
