Hi Group
Could you please explain to me what's the difference between Chars.IsDigit
and Chars.IsNumber?

I suppose it's about Unicode General-Category
IsDigits tests for Nd
Is Numeric tests for Nd+Nl+No

for example chinese numbersigns are numeric but not digits.

Char.IsNumber returns true for a much larger set of characters.
Char.IsDigit includes only characters with the UnicodeCategory
DecimalDigitNum ber, while Char.INumber also incudes the LetterNumber and
OtherNumber categories.

Follow this link for more info on the UnicodeCategory enumeration in .NET:

I read that the argument to isdigit() can be "an integer whose value is representable as an unsigned char, or the value of the macro EOF.". This seems to say that it should work for values greater than 127. And in Linux + GCC, it does - values between 128 and 255 are false. However, in Windows XP + GCC (at least some) values between 128 and 255 come out as true for isdigit. Someone suggested this may be because Windows uses a different...

N00b question alert! I did a search for isdigit() in the group discussion, and it didn't look like the question had been asked in the first 2 pages, so sorry if it was... The manual documentation says: "isdigit( ) Return true if all characters in the string are digits and there is at least one character, false otherwise. For 8-bit strings, this method is locale-dependent. "
