DESCRIPTION

The above functions perform character tests and conversions on the integer c. They are available as macros, defined in the include file <ctype.h>, or as true functions in the C library. See the specific manual pages for more information.

This philosophy, in the hands of amateurs, leads to inexplicably mind-numbing botches like the existence of two programs, “head” and “tail,” which print the first part or the last part of a file, depending. Even though their operations are duals of one another, “head” and “tail” are different programs, written by different authors, and take different options!
