[New-bugs-announce] [issue9770] curses.isblank function doesn't match ctype.h

New submission from Kevin Thibedeau <kevinpt at yahoo.com>:

The isblank() function defined in curses.ascii is incorrect and doesn't match the output from C's isblank() from ctype.h

Incorrect definition:
  def isblank(c): return _ctoi(c) in (8,32)

Should be:
  def isblank(c): return _ctoi(c) in (9,32)

This most likely affects all versions of Python, not just 2.7.
