ISSPACE(3)                 BSD Programmer's Manual                  ISSPACE(3)

NAME

     isspace - whitespace character test

SYNOPSIS

     #include <ctype.h>

     int
     isspace(int c);

DESCRIPTION

     The isspace() function tests for the standard whitespace characters for
     which isalnum(3) is false. The standard whitespace characters are the
     following:

           ' '    Space character.
           \f     Form feed.
           \n     New-line.
           \r     Carriage return.
           \t     Horizontal tab.
           \v     And vertical tab.

     In the C locale, isspace() returns true only for the standard whitespace
     characters.

RETURN VALUES

     The isspace() macro returns zero if the character tests false or non-zero
     if the character tests true.
