IsAlphaNumeric(char)

Parameters

char

-

string; character to test

Description

• 

The IsAlphaNumeric(char) command determines whether char is alphanumeric--that is, whether it is alphabetic or a decimal digit. A character is alphabetic if it is either upper or lowercase. A character is a decimal digit if it is one of the following:

0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.

  

If char is alphanumeric, IsAlphaNumeric returns true. Otherwise, false is returned.

• 

If char is a string that contains more than one character, then all the characters in the string are tested. The command returns true if the condition is true of all characters in the input string. For the empty string, the tested condition is vacuously true.

Thread Safety

• 

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

•
