Defined in header <cctype>
int isprint( int ch );

Checks if the given character can be printed, i. e. it is either a number (0123456789), an uppercase letter (ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ), a lowercase letter (abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz), a punctuation character(!"#$%&'()*+,-./:;<=>?@[\]^_`{|}~), or space, or any character classified as printable by the current C locale.

Parameters

ch - character

Return value

Non-zero value (true) if the character can be printed, 0 (false) otherwise.

Example

#include <iostream>
#include <cctype>
#include <clocale>
 
int main()
{
    char c = '\xa0'; // the non-breaking space in ISO-8859-1
 
    std::cout << "isprint(\'\\xa0\', default C locale) returned "
               << std::boolalpha << (bool)std::isprint(c) << '\n';
 
    std::setlocale(LC_ALL, "en_GB.iso88591");
    std::cout << "isprint(\'\\xa0\', ISO-8859-1 locale) returned "
              << std::boolalpha << (bool)std::isprint(c) << '\n';
}

Output:

isprint('\xa0', default C locale) returned false
isprint('\xa0', ISO-8859-1 locale) returned true
