     iscntrl(int c);

     int
     isdigit(int c);

     int
     isgraph(int c);

     int
     ishexnumber(int c);

     int
     isideogram(int c);

     int
     islower(int c);

     int
     isnumber(int c);

     int
     isphonogram(int c);

     int

DESCRIPTION
     The above functions perform character tests and conversions on the integer c.  They are available as
     macros, defined in the include file <ctype.h>, or as true functions in the C library.  See the specific
     manual pages for more information.

     Extended locale versions of these functions are documented in ctype_l(3).  See xlocale(3) for more
     information.

     These functions, except for digittoint(), isascii(), ishexnumber(), isideogram(), isnumber(),
     isphonogram(), isrune(), isspecial() and toascii(), conform to ISO/IEC 9899:1990 (``ISO C90'').
