ISSPACE(3)		 BSD Library Functions Manual		    ISSPACE(3)

NAME
     isspace --	white-space character test

LIBRARY
     Standard C	Library	(libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <ctype.h>

     int
     isspace(int c);

DESCRIPTION
     The isspace() function tests for the white-space characters.  For any lo-
     cale, this	includes the following standard	characters:

     ``\t''   ``\n''	``\v''	  ``\f''    ``\r''    `` ''

     In	the "C"	locale isspace() successful test is limited to this characters
     only.  For	single C chars locales (see multibyte(3)) the value of the ar-
     gument is representable as	an unsigned char or the	value of EOF.

RETURN VALUES
     The isspace() function returns zero if the	character tests	false and re-
     turns 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 ob-
     solete and	may not	be supported in	future releases.  The iswspace() func-
     tion should be used instead.

SEE ALSO
     ctype(3), iswspace(3), multibyte(3), ascii(7)

STANDARDS
     The isspace() function conforms to	ISO/IEC	9899:1990 ("ISO	C90").
