Python's str.isspace() method returns a boolean indicating whether all characters in a string are whitespaces.

Whitespace characters include tabs, spaces, newline etc.

Parameters

No parameters.

Return value

A boolean indicating whether all the characters in a string are whitespaces.

Examples

Basic usage

To check whether ' ' is all whitespace:

x = ' '
x.isspace()
True
True

To check whether ' \t' is all whitespace:

y = ' \t'
y.isspace()
True
True

Note that ' \t' represents a tab character.

To check whether ' e ' is all whitespace:

z = ' e '
z.isspace()
False
False

False is returned as 'e' is not a whitespace character.
