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

NAME         top

       iswspace - test for whitespace wide character

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <wctype.h>

       int iswspace(wint_t wc);

DESCRIPTION         top

       The iswspace() function is the wide-character equivalent of the
       isspace(3) function.  It tests whether wc is a wide character
       belonging to the wide-character class "space".

       The wide-character class "space" is disjoint from the wide-character
       class "graph" and therefore also disjoint from its subclasses
       "alnum", "alpha", "upper", "lower", "digit", "xdigit", "punct".

       The wide-character class "space" contains the wide-character class
       "blank".

       The wide-character class "space" always contains at least the space
       character and the control characters '\f', '\n', '\r', '\t', '\v'.

RETURN VALUE         top

       The iswspace() function returns nonzero if wc is a wide character
       belonging to the wide-character class "space".  Otherwise, it returns
       zero.

NOTES         top

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