Re: iswcntrl() regression




Hello Thomas,

Oops 1: I forgot to add the reference to POSIX:
http://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/functions/iswcntrl.html

Oops 2:
The relevant expression is iswcntrl (WEOF), not iswcntrl (EOF).

> > Are there any other special requirements concerning EOF?

WEOF is a special value. The difference between wint_t and wchar_t is
essentially that WEOF fits into wint_t but is not guaranteed to fit in wchar_t.
(Like EOF fits into 'int' but usually does not fit in 'unsigned char'.)

WEOF is special for all functions declared in <wctype.h>, see

Probably, yes.
