However, the standard seems to say that isalpha etc. are required to be functions that take an int, and may also be macros. So it seems that code that is written with an unsigned char should compile without warnings. Here's a simpler question: if these were implemented as functions, with the type signature required by the standard, how would that be different than adding a cast to int as D'Arcy suggests? This all seems quite difficult; the notion of a int carrying either a char or EOF makes it likely to have errors from type promotion.
