The wcsftime() function shall be equivalent to the strftime()
The argument wcs points to the initial element of an array of
wide characters into which the generated output is to be
The argument maxsize indicates the maximum number of wide characters
to be placed in the output array.
The argument format is a wide-character string and the conversion
specifications are replaced by corresponding sequences
of wide characters.
The return value indicates the number of wide characters placed in
the output array.
If copying takes place between objects that overlap, the behavior
If the total number of resulting wide-character codes including the
terminating null wide-character code is no more than
maxsize, wcsftime() shall return the number of wide-character
codes placed into the array pointed to by wcs,
not including the terminating null wide-character code. Otherwise,
zero is returned and the contents of the array are
No errors are defined.
