Idiom #110 Check if string is blank

Set the boolean blank to true if the string s is empty, or null, or contains only whitespace ; false otherwise.

const blank = s == null || s.trim() === ''
with Ada.Strings.Fixed;
use Ada.Strings.Fixed;
Blank := Index_Non_Blank (Str) = 0;

for (const char *p = s; *p; p++) {
	if (!isspace(*p)) {
		blank = false;
		break;
	}
}
