isspace, iswspace

int isspace(
   int c 
);
int iswspace(
   wint_t c 
);

Each of these routines returns nonzero if c is a particular representation of a space character.

Parameter

c
Integer to test.

Return Value

isspace returns a non-zero value if c is a white-space character (0x09 – 0x0D or 0x20). The result of the test condition for the isspace function depends on the LC_CTYPE category setting of the current locale; see setlocale for more information.

iswspace returns a non-zero value if c is a wide character that corresponds to a standard white-space character.

When used with a debug CRT library, isspace will display a CRT assert if passed a parameter that isn't EOF or in the range of 0 through 0xFF. When used with a debug CRT library, isspace will use the parameter as an index into an array, with undefined results if the parameter isn't EOF or in the range of 0 through 0xFF.
