ISSPACE(3P)                POSIX Programmer's Manual               ISSPACE(3P)



PROLOG
       This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual.  The Linux implementation of this interface may dif-
       fer (consult the corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface  may  not  be
       implemented on Linux.

NAME
       isspace - test for a white-space character

SYNOPSIS
       #include <ctype.h>

       int isspace(int c);


DESCRIPTION
       The  isspace() function shall test whether c is a character of class space in the program's current locale; see
       the Base Definitions volume of IEEE Std 1003.1-2001, Chapter 7, Locale.

       The c argument is an int, the value of which the application shall ensure is a character  representable  as  an
       unsigned  char  or  equal  to  the value of the macro EOF. If the argument has any other value, the behavior is
       undefined.

RETURN VALUE
       The isspace() function shall return non-zero if c is a white-space character; otherwise, it shall return 0.

ERRORS
       No errors are defined.

       The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES
       None.

APPLICATION USAGE
       To ensure applications portability, especially across natural languages, only this function and those listed in
       the SEE ALSO section should be used for character classification.

RATIONALE
       None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
       None.
