wcsxfrm(3)

NAME

wcsxfrm - transform a wide string under locale

LIBRARY

Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS

#include <wchar.h>
size_t
wcsxfrm(wchar_t * restrict dst,  const  wchar_t  *  restrict
src, size_t n);

DESCRIPTION

The wcsxfrm() function transforms a null-terminated wide
character string
pointed to by src according to the current locale collation
order then
copies the transformed string into dst. No more than n wide
characters
are copied into dst, including the terminating null charac
ter added. If
n is set to 0 (it helps to determine an actual size needed
for transformation), dst is permitted to be a NULL pointer.
Comparing two strings using wcscmp() after wcsxfrm() is
equivalent to
comparing two original strings with wcscoll().

RETURN VALUES

Upon successful completion, wcsxfrm() returns the length of
the transformed string not including the terminating null character.
If this
value is n or more, the contents of dst are indeterminate.

SEE ALSO

setlocale(3), strxfrm(3), wcscmp(3), wcscoll(3)

STANDARDS

The wcsxfrm() function conforms to ISO/IEC 9899:1999 (``ISO
C99'').

BUGS

The current implementation of wcsxfrm() only works in sin
gle-byte
LC_CTYPE locales, and falls back to using wcsncpy() in lo
cales with
extended character sets.
Comparing two strings using wcscmp() after wcsxfrm() is not
always equivalent to comparison with wcscoll(); wcsxfrm() only stores
information
about primary collation weights into dst, whereas wcscoll()
compares
characters using both primary and secondary weights.
