NAME

wctob - wide-character to single-byte conversion  

SYNOPSIS

DESCRIPTION

The wctob() function shall determine whether c corresponds to a member of the extended character set whose character representation is a single byte when in the initial shift state.

The behavior of this function shall be affected by the LC_CTYPE category of the current locale.  

RETURN VALUE

The wctob() function shall return EOF if c does not correspond to a character with length one in the initial shift state. Otherwise, it shall return the single-byte representation of that character as an unsigned char converted to int.
