Defines the macros traditionally defined in the Standard C library header <ctype.h>.

#if <TRADITIONAL C HEADERS>
   #include <ctype.h>
namespace std {
   using ::isalnum; 
   using ::isalpha; 
   using ::iscntrl;
   using ::isdigit; 
   using ::isgraph; 
   using ::islower;
   using ::isprint; 
   using ::ispunct; 
   using ::isspace;
   using ::isupper; 
   using ::isxdigit; 
   using ::tolower;
   using ::toupper;
}

#undef isalnum
#undef isalpha
#undef isblank
#undef iscntrl
#undef isdigit
#undef isgraph
#undef islower
#undef isprint
#undef ispunct
#undef isspace
#undef isupper
#undef isxdigit
#undef tolower
#undef toupper

Including this header also ensures that the names declared with external linkage in the Standard C library header are declared in the std namespace. In this implementation, the names may or may not also be declared in the global namespace, depending on the specific translation environment.
