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
Being a subclass of the wide-character class "space", the wide-charac‐
ter 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'.
The iswblank() function returns non-zero if wc is a wide character
belonging to the wide-character class "blank". Otherwise it returns
The behavior of iswblank() depends on the LC_CTYPE category of the cur‐
