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 sin-
       gle 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.
