|C Standard Library|
C alternative tokens refer to a set of alternative spellings of common operators in the C programming language. They are implemented as a group of macro constants in the C standard library in the
iso646.h header. The tokens were added to the standard in a 1995 amendment to the C90 standard.
The alternative tokens allow programmers to use C language bitwise and logical operators which could otherwise be hard to type on some international and non-QWERTY keyboards. The name of the header file they are implemented in refers to the ISO646 standard, a 7-bit character set with a number of regional variations, some of which have accented characters in place of the punctuation marks used by C operators.
iso646.h header defines the following 11 macros as stated below:
The abovementioned identifiers are operator keywords in the ISO C++ programming language and do not require the inclusion of a header file. For consistency, the C++98 standard provides the header
<ciso646>. However the latter file has no effect, being empty. Notwithstanding some compilers, such as Microsoft Visual C++, do require the header to be included in order to use these identifiers.
