OCIWideCharIsAlnum()

Purpose

Tests whether a wide character is a letter or a decimal digit.

Syntax

boolean OCIWideCharIsAlnum ( void       *hndl,
                             OCIWchar   wc );

Parameters

hndl (IN/OUT)

OCI environment or user session handle to determine the character set.

wc (IN)

The wchar for testing.

Returns

TRUE or FALSE.

OCIWideCharIsAlpha()

Purpose

Tests whether a wide character is a letter.

Syntax

boolean OCIWideCharIsAlpha ( void      *hndl, 
                             OCIWchar  wc );

Parameters

hndl (IN/OUT)

OCI environment or user session handle to determine the character set.

wc (IN)

The wchar for testing.

Returns

TRUE or FALSE.

OCIWideCharIsCntrl()

Purpose

Tests whether a wide character is a control character.

Syntax

boolean OCIWideCharIsCntrl ( void        *hndl, 
                             OCIWchar    wc );

Parameters

hndl (IN/OUT)

OCI environment or user session handle to determine the character set.

wc (IN)

The wchar for testing.

Returns

TRUE or FALSE.

OCIWideCharIsDigit()

Purpose

Tests whether a wide character is a decimal digit character.

Syntax

boolean OCIWideCharIsDigit ( void       *hndl, 
                             OCIWchar   wc );

Parameters

hndl (IN/OUT)

OCI environment or user session handle to determine the character set.

wc (IN)

The wchar for testing.

Returns

TRUE or FALSE.

OCIWideCharIsGraph()

Purpose

Tests whether a wide character is a graph character. A graph character is a character with a visible representation and normally includes alphabetic letters, decimal digits, and punctuation.

Syntax

boolean OCIWideCharIsGraph ( void      *hndl, 
                             OCIWchar   wc );

Parameters

hndl (IN/OUT)

OCI environment or user session handle to determine the character set.

wc (IN)

The wchar for testing.

Returns

TRUE or FALSE.

OCIWideCharIsLower()

Purpose

Tests whether a wide character is a lowercase letter.

Syntax

boolean OCIWideCharIsLower ( void       *hndl, 
                             OCIWchar    wc );

Parameters

hndl (IN/OUT)

OCI environment or user session handle to determine the character set.

wc (IN)

The wchar for testing.

Returns

TRUE or FALSE.

OCIWideCharIsPrint()

Purpose

Tests whether a wide character is a printable character.

Syntax

boolean OCIWideCharIsPrint ( void      *hndl, 
                             OCIWchar  wc );

Parameters

hndl (IN/OUT)

OCI environment or user session handle to determine the character set.

wc (IN)

The wchar for testing.

Returns

TRUE or FALSE.

OCIWideCharIsPunct()

Purpose

Tests whether a wide character is a punctuation character.

Syntax

boolean OCIWideCharIsPunct ( void       *hndl, 
                             OCIWchar   wc );

Parameters

hndl (IN/OUT)

OCI environment or user session handle to determine the character set.

wc (IN)

The wchar for testing.

Returns

TRUE or FALSE.
