std::isupper

From cppreference.com
< cpp‎ | string‎ | byte
Defined in header <cctype>
int isupper( int ch );

Checks if the given character is an uppercase character as classified by the currently installed C locale. In the default "C" locale, isupper returns true only for the uppercase letters (ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ).

If isupper returns true, it is guaranteed that iscntrl, isdigit, ispunct, and isspace return false for the same character in the same C locale.

The behavior is undefined if the value of ch is not representable as unsigned char and is not equal to EOF.

[edit] Parameters

ch - character to classify

[edit] Return value

Non-zero value (true) if the character is an uppercase letter, 0 (false) otherwise.

[edit] Example

#include <iostream>
#include <cctype>
#include <clocale>
 
int main()
{
    unsigned char c = '\xc6'; // letter Æ in ISO-8859-1
 
    std::cout << "isupper(\'\\xc6\', default C locale) returned "
               << std::boolalpha << (bool)std::isupper(c) << '\n';
 
    std::setlocale(LC_ALL, "en_GB.iso88591");
    std::cout << "isupper(\'\\xc6\', ISO-8859-1 locale) returned "
              << std::boolalpha << (bool)std::isupper(c) << '\n';
 
}

Output:

isupper('\xc6', default C locale) returned false
isupper('\xc6', ISO-8859-1 locale) returned true
