Defined in header <locale>

bool isupper( charT ch, const locale& loc );


Checks if the given character classified as an uppercase alphabetic character by the given locale's std::ctype facet.

Contents

[edit] Parameters

ch - character
loc - locale

[edit] Return value

Returns true if the character is classified as uppercase, false otherwise.

[edit] Possible implementation

template< class charT >
bool isupper( charT ch, const std::locale& loc ) {
    return std::use_facet<std::ctype<charT>>(loc).is(std::ctype_base::upper, ch);
}

[edit] Example

Demonstrates the use of isupper() with different locales (OS-specific).

#include <iostream>
#include <locale>
int main()
{
    const wchar_t c = L'\u00de'; // capital letter thorn
 
    std::locale loc1("C");
    std::cout << "isupper('Þ', C locale) returned "
               << std::boolalpha << std::isupper(c, loc1) << '\n';
 
    std::locale loc2("en_US.UTF8");
    std::cout << "isupper('Þ', Unicode locale) returned "
              << std::boolalpha << std::isupper(c, loc2) << '\n';
}

Output:

isupper('Þ', C locale) returned false
isupper('Þ', Unicode locale) returned true
