NAME

btowc, wctob – convert between wide and single-byte characters

CONTENTS

LIBRARY

Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS

#include <wchar.h>

wint_t
btowc(int c);

int
wctob(wint_t c);
#include <wchar.h>
#include <xlocale.h>

wint_t
btowc_l(int c, locale_t loc);

int
wctob_l(wint_t c, locale_t loc);

DESCRIPTION

The btowc() function converts a single-byte character into a corresponding wide character. If the character is EOF or not valid in the initial shift state, btowc() returns WEOF.

The wctob() function converts a wide character into a corresponding single-byte character. If the wide character is WEOF or not able to be represented as a single byte in the initial shift state, wctob() returns EOF.

The _l-suffixed versions take an explicit locale argument, while the non-suffixed versions use the current global or per-thread locale.

SEE ALSO

mbrtowc(3), multibyte(3), wcrtomb(3)

STANDARDS

The btowc() and wctob() functions conform to IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 ("POSIX.1").

HISTORY

The btowc() and wctob() functions first appeared in FreeBSD 5.0 .

The most important thing in the programming language is the name. A language will not succeed without a good name. I have recently invented a very good name and now I am looking for a suitable language.
