nextwctype(3)            BSD Library Functions Manual            nextwctype(3)


NAME

     nextwctype, nextwctype_l -- iterate through character classes


LIBRARY

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)


SYNOPSIS

     #include <wctype.h>

     wint_t
     nextwctype(wint_t ch, wctype_t wct);

     #include <xlocale.h>

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


DESCRIPTION

     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.


RETURN VALUES

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


COMPATIBILITY

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


SEE ALSO

     wctype(3), xlocale(3)


HISTORY

     The nextwctype() function appeared in FreeBSD 5.4.
