       isprint, ispunct, isspace, isupper, isxdigit - character classification

       #include <ctype.h>

       int isalnum(int c);
       int isalpha(int c);
       int isascii(int c);
       int isblank(int c);
       int iscntrl(int c);
       int isdigit(int c);
       int isgraph(int c);
       int islower(int c);
       int isprint(int c);
       int ispunct(int c);
       int isspace(int c);
       int isupper(int c);
       int isxdigit(int c);

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

       isascii(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE
       isblank(): _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE; or cc -std=c99

       These  functions	 check	whether	 c,  which  must  have the value of an
       unsigned char or EOF, falls into a certain character class according to
       the current locale.

	      checks for an alphanumeric character; it is equivalent to (isal‐
	      pha(c) || isdigit(c)).

	      checks for an alphabetic character; in the standard "C"  locale,
	      it  is  equivalent  to  (isupper(c)  ||  islower(c)).   In  some
	      locales, there may be additional characters for which  isalpha()
	      is true—letters which are neither upper case nor lower case.

	      checks  whether  c is a 7-bit unsigned char value that fits into
	      the ASCII character set.

	      checks for a blank character; that is, a space or a tab.

	      checks for a control character.

	      checks for a digit (0 through 9).

	      checks for any printable character except space.

	      checks for a lower-case character.

	      checks for any printable character including space.

	      checks for any printable character which is not a	 space	or  an
	      alphanumeric character.

	      checks  for  white-space	characters.   In  the  "C" and "POSIX"
	      locales, these are: space,  form-feed  ('\f'),  newline  ('\n'),
	      carriage	return ('\r'), horizontal tab ('\t'), and vertical tab

	      checks for an uppercase letter.

	      checks for a hexadecimal digits, that is, one of
	      0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 a b c d e f A B C D E F.

       The values returned are non-zero if the	character  c  falls  into  the
       tested class, and a zero value if not.

       C99, 4.3BSD.  C89 specifies all of these functions except isascii() and
       isblank().  isascii() is a BSD extension and is also an SVr4 extension.
       isblank() conforms to POSIX.1-2001 and C99  POSIX.1-2008 marks
       isascii() as obsolete, noting that it cannot  be	 used  portably	 in  a
       localized application.

       The  details  of	 what characters belong into which class depend on the
       current locale.	For example, isupper() will not recognize an  A-umlaut
       (Ä) as an uppercase letter in the default C locale.
