#include <stdio.h> /* printf */
#include <ctype.h> /* isalpha isdigit isspace etc */

#define FALSE 0
#define TRUE 1

/* function declarations */
int char_type(char);

char ch;
/* get a character from the keyboard */
printf(" Please enter a charcater => ");
ch = getc(stdin);

char_type(ch); /* Figure out the character type */


//char_type:decides the character type
int char_type(char ch)
/* returns non zero if A-Z or a-z */
if ( isalpha(ch) != FALSE)
printf("%c is an Alpha character.n",ch);

/* returns non zero if 0-9 */
if ( isdigit(ch) != FALSE)
printf("%c is a numeric character.n",ch);

/* returns non zero if a space, CR, Tab, NL FF */
if ( isspace(ch) != FALSE)
printf("%c is white spacen", ch);
