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

this could be fixed in iswcntrl_l.c as a special condition, or
injected as a special case in the categories.t table.
Probably, yes.
Thomas, any input?  Are you going to provide patches?
Well, yes, now I'm assuming that this is the only WEOF special case and I'll look after it this week.
