ISBLANK(3)			   BSD Library Functions Manual 		       ISBLANK(3)

NAME
     isblank -- blank-space character test

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <ctype.h>

     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.

     behavior is undefined.  See the CAVEATS section of ctype(3) for more details.
