    It seems to be unspecified. This is probably a bug in the standard.
    Here's a link to C99 with all the technical corrigenda included. The
    relevant part is section 7.4 starting on page 181.

    Rockall, Malin, Hebrides: South 5 to 7, occasionally gale 8 at first in
    Rockall and Malin, veering west or northwest 4 or 5, then backing
    southwest 5
    or 6 later. Rough or very rough. Occasional rain. Moderate or good,
    occasionally poor.

Although the C99 standard does not state it, the C99 rationale v5.1[1] does
"*7.4.1Character classification functions *
**The definitions of /printing character /and /control character /have
been generalized from ASCII.
Note that none of these functions returns a nonzero value (true) for the
argument value *EOF*."

So if Microsoft claims to be in support of the C99 standard, this is clearly a bug in their implementation of the SDK. And since they don't have a friendly mailing list and community like Lua does, I am fucked.

Seems like I have to take is*() from another system, just to be sure...
