NAME

       iswlower - test for lowercase wide character

SYNOPSIS

       #include <wctype.h>

       int iswlower (wint_t wc);

DESCRIPTION

       The  iswlower  function is the wide-character equivalent of the islower
       function. It tests whether wc is a wide character belonging to the wide
       character class "lower".

       The  wide  character  class "lower" is a subclass of the wide character
       class "alpha", and therefore also a  subclass  of  the  wide  character
       class  "alnum",  of  the  wide  character class "graph" and of the wide
       character class "print".

       Being a  subclass  of  the  wide  character  class  "print",  the  wide
       character  class  "lower"  is  disjoint  from  the wide character class
       "cntrl".

       Being a  subclass  of  the  wide  character  class  "graph",  the  wide
       character  class  "lower"  is  disjoint  from  the wide character class
       "space" and its subclass "blank".

       Being a  subclass  of  the  wide  character  class  "alnum",  the  wide
       character  class  "lower"  is  disjoint  from  the wide character class
       "punct".

       Being a  subclass  of  the  wide  character  class  "alpha",  the  wide
       character  class  "lower"  is  disjoint  from  the wide character class
       "digit".

       The wide character class "lower" contains at least those characters  wc
       which are equal to towlower(wc) and different from towupper(wc).

       The  wide  character class "lower" always contains at least the letters
       ā€™aā€™ to ā€™zā€™.

RETURN VALUE

       The iswlower function returns  non-zero  if  wc  is  a  wide  character
       belonging  to  the  wide  character class "lower". Otherwise it returns
       zero.

NOTES

       The behaviour of iswlower depends  on  the  LC_CTYPE  category  of  the
       current locale.

       This  function  is  not  very  appropriate  for  dealing  with  Unicode
       characters, because Unicode knows about three cases: upper,  lower  and
       title case.
