NAME

towctrans - wide-character transliteration  

SYNOPSIS

#include <wctype.h>

wint_t towctrans(wint_t wc, wctrans_t desc);
 

DESCRIPTION

The towctrans() function shall transliterate the wide-character code wc using the mapping described by desc. The current setting of the LC_CTYPE category should be the same as during the call to wctrans() that returned the value desc.  If the value of desc is invalid (that is, not obtained by a call to wctrans() or desc is invalidated by a subsequent call to setlocale() that has affected category LC_CTYPE ), the result is unspecified.

An application wishing to check for error situations should set errno to 0 before calling towctrans(). If errno is non-zero on return, an error has occurred.  

RETURN VALUE

If successful, the towctrans() function shall return the mapped value of wc using the mapping described by desc. Otherwise, it shall return wc unchanged.  

ERRORS

The towctrans() function may fail if:

EINVAL
desc contains an invalid transliteration descriptor.

The following sections are informative.  

EXAMPLES

None.

towupper(wc)    towctrans(wc, wctrans("toupper"))
