int isgraph(int c);

Parameters

  • c − This is the character to be checked.

Return Value

Example

The following example shows the usage of isgraph() function.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <ctype.h>

int main()
{
   int var1 = '3';
   int var2 = 'm';
   int var3 = ' ';
    
   if( isgraph(var1) )
   {
      printf("var1 = |%c| can be printed\n", var1 );
   }
   else
   {
      printf("var1 = |%c| can't be printed\n", var1 );
   }
   
   if( isgraph(var2) )
   {
      printf("var2 = |%c| can be printed\n", var2 );
   }
   else
   {
      printf("var2 = |%c| can't be printed\n", var2 );
   }
   
   if( isgraph(var3) )
   {
      printf("var3 = |%c| can be printed\n", var3 );
   }
   else
   {
      printf("var3 = |%c| can't be printed\n", var3 );
   }
   
   return(0);
}

Let us compile and run the above program to produce the following result −

var1 = |3| can be printed
var2 = |m| can be printed
var3 = | | can't be printed
