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

NAME         top

       iswblank - test for whitespace wide character

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <wctype.h>

       int iswblank(wint_t wc);

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see
   feature_test_macros(7)):

       iswblank():
           _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L

DESCRIPTION         top

       The iswblank() function is the wide-character equivalent of the
       isblank(3) function.  It tests whether wc is a wide character
       belonging to the wide-character class "blank".

       The wide-character class "blank" is a subclass of the wide-
       character class "space".

       Being a subclass of the wide-character class "space", the wide-
       character class "blank" 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 "blank" always contains at least the
       space character and the control character '\t'.

RETURN VALUE         top

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