iswprint() in C/C++ with Examples
  • Last Updated : 30 Aug, 2018


The iswprint() is a built-in function in C/C++ which checks if the given wide character can be printed or not. It is defined within the cwctype header file of C++. By default, the following characters are printable:

  • Digits (0 to 9)
  • Uppercase letters (A to Z)
  • Lowercase letters (a to z)
  • Punctuation characters (!”#$%&'()*+, -./:;?@[\]^_`{|}~)
  • Space

Syntax:

int iswprint(ch)

Parameters: The function accepts a single mandatory parameter ch which specifies the wide character which has to be checked if printable or not.

Return Value: The function returns two values as shown below.

  • If the parameter ch, is printable, then a non-zero value is returned.
  • If it is not a printable character then 0 is returned.

Below programs illustrates the above function.



Program 1:




// Program to illustrate
// towprint() function
#include <cwchar>
#include <cwctype>
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main()
{
  
    wchar_t str[] = L"Geeks\tfor\tGeeks";
    for (int i = 0; i < wcslen(str); i++) {
  
        // Function to check if the characters are
        // printable or not. If not, then replace
        // all non printable character by comma
        if (!iswprint(str[i]))
            str[i] = ', ';
    }
    wcout << "Printing, if the given wide 
    character cannot be printed\n";
    wcout << str;
    return 0;
}


Output:

Printing , if the given wide character cannot be printed
Geeks, for, Geeks

Program 2:




// Program to illustrate
// towprint() function
#include <cwchar>
#include <cwctype>
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main()
{
  
    wchar_t str[] = L"Ishwar Gupta\t123\t!@#";
    for (int i = 0; i < wcslen(str); i++) {
  
        // Function to check if the characters are
        // printable or not. If not, then replace
        // all non printable character by comma
        if (!iswprint(str[i]))
            str[i] = ', ';
    }
    wcout << "Printing, if the given wide 
    character cannot be printed\n";
    wcout << str;
    return 0;
}


Output:

Printing , if the given wide character cannot be printed
Ishwar Gupta, 123, !@#
