btowc: single byte to wide character conversion
PROLOGThis manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual. The Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may not be implemented on Linux.
btowc - single byte to wide character conversion
The btowc() function shall determine whether c constitutes a valid (one-byte) character in the initial shift state.
The btowc() function shall return WEOF if c has the value EOF or if (unsigned char) c does not constitute a valid (one-byte) character in the initial shift state. Otherwise, it shall return the wide-character representation of that character.
No errors are defined.
