That seems sensible, but the other prototype was correct.  The
C prototype is
  int isalpha (int);
But even if the C prototype were this
  int isalpha (char c);
your prototype wouldn't be correct for RPG because of 2 things:
1. C thinks "char" is an integer type, RPG doesn't
2. C thinks "char" is a 4-byte integer type, when it comes to
   parameter passing, and RPG thinks it's 1 byte

The V5R1 EXTPROC(*CWIDEN) can handle these problems for you.
Otherwise, you need to jump through some hoops.  (See the URL
I posted in my previous "isalpha" post.)
