NAME
MB_LEN_MAX - maximum multibyte length of a character across all locales SYNOPSIS
#include <limits.h> DESCRIPTION
The MB_LEN_MAX macro is the upper bound for the number of bytes needed to represent a single wide character, across all locales. RETURN VALUE
A constant integer greater than zero. CONFORMING TO
C99, POSIX.1-2001. NOTES
The entities MB_LEN_MAX and sizeof(wchar_t) are totally unrelated. In glibc, MB_LEN_MAX is typically 6 while sizeof(wchar_t) is 4. SEE ALSO

NAME
MB_CUR_MAX - maximum length of a multibyte character in the current locale SYNOPSIS
#include <stdlib.h> DESCRIPTION
The MB_CUR_MAX macro defines an integer expression giving the maximum number of bytes needed to represent a single wide character in the current locale. This value is locale dependent and therefore not a compile-time constant. RETURN VALUE
An integer in the range [1, MB_LEN_MAX]. The value 1 denotes traditional 8-bit encoded characters. CONFORMING TO
POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008, C99. SEE ALSO
