How to test if a field does not contain anything else than returns or tab?

This assumes what you need is whether text is in the field...
function isEmpty pFld
return (num of words of fld pFld = 0)
I need to test if a given list field in a stack contains some values
or if it is empty.
Well, by "empty" I mean that the field contains not any word or
number. But it happens that it may include carriage returns and/or tabs.
In such cases :
field "thisField" is empty
If there were only carriage returns, I could test if each line of the
field is empty;
line x of fld "thisField" is empty
returns true if the only character in the line is cr
but returns false if there is at least one tab in the line.
I just tried :
if last char of fld "thisField" is empty ;-))
that seems working well ! but a bit strange and might be not reliable ?
Is there a better trick ?
Thanks for any idea
