ISBLANK(3)                 Library Functions Manual                 ISBLANK(3)

NAME
     isblank -- blank-space character test

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <&lt;ctype.h>&gt;

     int
     isblank(int c);

DESCRIPTION
     The isblank() function tests for the standard blank-space characters.
     The standard blank-space characters are the following:

           ` '    Space character.
           \t     Horizontal tab.

     In the ``C'' locale, isblank() returns true only for the standard blank-
     space characters.

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