ISWBLANK(3)			    Linux Programmer's Manual			      ISWBLANK(3)

NAME
       iswblank - test for whitespace wide character

SYNOPSIS
       #include <wctype.h>

       int iswblank(wint_t wc);

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       iswblank():
	      _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
	      or cc -std=c99

DESCRIPTION
       The  iswblank()	function is the wide-character equivalent of the isblank(3) function.  It
       tests whether wc is a wide character belonging to the wide-character class "blank".

       The wide-character class "blank" is a subclass of the wide-character class "space".

       Being a subclass of the wide-character class "space", the wide-character class "blank"  is
       disjoint  from  the wide-character class "graph" and therefore also disjoint from its sub-
       classes "alnum", "alpha", "upper", "lower", "digit", "xdigit", "punct".

       The wide-character class "blank" always contains at least the space character and the con-
       trol character '\t'.

RETURN VALUE
       The  iswblank()	function returns nonzero if wc is a wide character belonging to the wide-
       character class "blank".  Otherwise it returns zero.

CONFORMING TO
       POSIX.1-2001.

NOTES
       The behavior of iswblank() depends on the LC_CTYPE category of the current locale.
