NAME
       isprint - test for a printable character

SYNOPSIS
       #include <ctype.h>

       int isprint(int c);

DESCRIPTION
       The isprint() function shall test whether c is a character of class print 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  isprint() function shall return non-zero if c is a printable character; otherwise, it
       shall return 0.

ERRORS
       No errors are defined.
