isspace

From natekohl.net
< c‎ | string‎ | byte
Defined in header <ctype.h>
int isspace( int ch );

Checks if the given character is a whitespace character, i.e. either space (0x20), form feed (0x0c), line feed (0x0a), carriage return (0x0d), horizontal tab (0x09) or vertical tab (0x0b).

The behavior is undefined if the value of ch is not representable as unsigned char and is not equal to EOF.

[edit] Parameters

ch - character to classify

[edit] Return value

Non-zero value if the character is a whitespace character, zero otherwise.

[edit] Example

#include <stdio.h>
#include <ctype.h>
#include <limits.h>
 
int main(void)
{
    for (int ndx=0; ndx<=UCHAR_MAX; ndx++)
        if (isspace(ndx)) printf("0x%02x\n", ndx);
}

Output:

0x09
0x0a
0x0b
0x0c
0x0d
0x20
