8 Unicode character classification and properties <unictype.h>

This include file declares functions that classify Unicode characters and that test whether Unicode characters have specific properties.

The classification assigns a “general category” to every Unicode character. This is similar to the classification provided by ISO C in <wctype.h>.

Properties are the data that guides various text processing algorithms in the presence of specific Unicode characters.
