Parameter: The function accepts a single mandatory parameter ch which specifies the wide character which we have to check that if it is a control character or not.

  • If ch is a control character, then a non-zero value is returned.
  • If it is not then it returns 0.

Below programs illustrates the above function.

#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
  
int main()
{
    wchar_t ch1 = L'\n';
  
    // checks if it is a control character
    if (iswcntrl(ch1))

    else
        wcout << "It is not a control Character";
    return 0;
}

It is a control Character

Program 2:




// C++ program to illustrate the

using namespace std;
  
int main()
{
    wchar_t ch1 = L'@';
  
    // checks if it is a control character
    if (iswcntrl(ch1))
