ISPRINT(3)	       FreeBSD Library Functions Manual		    ISPRINT(3)

NAME
     isprint --	printing character test	(space character inclusive)

LIBRARY
     Standard C	Library	(libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <ctype.h>

     int
     isprint(int c);

DESCRIPTION
     The isprint() function tests for any printing character, including	space
     (`	').  The value of the argument must be representable as	an unsigned
     char or the value of EOF.

     In	the ASCII character set, this includes the following characters	(with
     their numeric values shown	in octal):

     040 sp	   041 ``!''	 042 ``"''     043 ``#''     044 ``$''
     045 ``%''	   046 ``&''	 047 ``'''     050 ``(''     051 ``)''
     052 ``*''	   053 ``+''	 054 ``,''     055 ``-''     056 ``.''
     057 ``/''	   060 ``0''	 061 ``1''     062 ``2''     063 ``3''
     064 ``4''	   065 ``5''	 066 ``6''     067 ``7''     070 ``8''
     071 ``9''	   072 ``:''	 073 ``;''     074 ``<''     075 ``=''
     076 ``>''	   077 ``?''	 100 ``@''     101 ``A''     102 ``B''
     103 ``C''	   104 ``D''	 105 ``E''     106 ``F''     107 ``G''
     110 ``H''	   111 ``I''	 112 ``J''     113 ``K''     114 ``L''
     115 ``M''	   116 ``N''	 117 ``O''     120 ``P''     121 ``Q''
     122 ``R''	   123 ``S''	 124 ``T''     125 ``U''     126 ``V''
     127 ``W''	   130 ``X''	 131 ``Y''     132 ``Z''     133 ``[''
     134 ``\''	   135 ``]''	 136 ``^''     137 ``_''     140 ```''
     141 ``a''	   142 ``b''	 143 ``c''     144 ``d''     145 ``e''
     146 ``f''	   147 ``g''	 150 ``h''     151 ``i''     152 ``j''
     153 ``k''	   154 ``l''	 155 ``m''     156 ``n''     157 ``o''
     160 ``p''	   161 ``q''	 162 ``r''     163 ``s''     164 ``t''
     165 ``u''	   166 ``v''	 167 ``w''     170 ``x''     171 ``y''
     172 ``z''	   173 ``{''	 174 ``|''     175 ``}''     176 ``~''

RETURN VALUES
     The isprint() function returns zero if the	character tests	false and
     returns non-zero if the character tests true.

COMPATIBILITY
     The 4.4BSD	extension of accepting arguments outside of the	range of the
     unsigned char type	in locales with	large character	sets is	considered
     obsolete and may not be supported in future releases.  The	iswprint()
     function should be	used instead.

SEE ALSO
     ctype(3), iswprint(3), ascii(7)

STANDARDS
     The isprint() function conforms to	ISO/IEC	9899:1990 (``ISO C90'').
