HasControlCharacter - Maple Help

StringTools

 HasControlCharacter
 determine if a string contains a control character

 Calling Sequence HasControlCharacter(s)

Parameters

 s - string; string to test

Description

 • The HasControlCharacter( s ) command determines whether s contains a control character.
 If s contains a control character, HasControlCharacter returns true. Otherwise, false is returned.
 Note: A control character is a special non-printing character that is defined by the character set to which it belongs. For more information about control characters in Maple, see backslash.
 • All of the StringTools package commands treat strings as (null-terminated) sequences of $8$-bit (ASCII) characters.  Thus, there is no support for multibyte character encodings, such as unicode encodings.

 • The StringTools[HasControlCharacter] command is thread-safe as of Maple 15.
