SYNOPSIS


#include <wctype.h> 

int iswblank(wint_t wc);

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

iswblank():

_XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
or cc -std=c99

DESCRIPTION

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

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

CONFORMING TO

POSIX.1-2001.

NOTES

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

SEE ALSO

isblank(3), iswctype(3)
