NEXTWCTYPE(3)            BSD Library Functions Manual            NEXTWCTYPE(3)

     nextwctype, nextwctype_l -- iterate through character classes

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

     #include <wctype.h>

     nextwctype(wint_t ch, wctype_t wct);

     #include <xlocale.h>

     nextwctype_l(wint_t ch, wctype_t wct, locale_t loc);

     The nextwctype() function determines the next character after ch that is a member of character class
     wct.  If ch is -1, the search begins at the first member of wct.

     While the nextwctype() function uses the current locale, the
      .Fn nextwctype_l function may be passed a locale directly. See xlocale(3) for more information.

     The nextwctype() function returns the next character, or -1 if there are no more.

     This function is a non-standard FreeBSD extension and should not be used where the standard iswctype()
     function would suffice.

     wctype(3), xlocale(3)

     The nextwctype() function appeared in FreeBSD 5.4.
