PROLOG
This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual. The Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the correspond- ing Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may not be implemented on Linux. NAME
wcwidth - number of column positions of a wide-character code SYNOPSIS
#include <wchar.h> int wcwidth(wchar_t wc); DESCRIPTION
The wcwidth() function shall determine the number of column positions required for the wide character wc. The application shall ensure that the value of wc is a character representable as a wchar_t, and is a wide-character code corresponding to a valid character in the current locale. RETURN VALUE
The wcwidth() function shall either return 0 (if wc is a null wide-character code), or return the number of column positions to be occupied by the wide-character code wc, or return -1 (if wc does not correspond to a printable wide-character code). ERRORS
No errors are defined. The following sections are informative. EXAMPLES
None. APPLICATION USAGE
This function was removed from the final ISO/IEC 9899:1990/Amendment 1:1995 (E), and the return value for a non-printable wide character is not specified. RATIONALE
None. FUTURE DIRECTIONS
None. SEE ALSO

wcswidth -- number of column positions of a wide-character string SYNOPSIS
#include <wchar.h> int wcswidth(const wchar_t *pwcs, size_t n); DESCRIPTION
The wcswidth() function shall determine the number of column positions required for n wide-character codes (or fewer than n wide-character codes if a null wide-character code is encountered before n wide-character codes are exhausted) in the string pointed to by pwcs. RETURN VALUE
The wcswidth() function either shall return 0 (if pwcs points to a null wide-character code), or return the number of column positions to be occupied by the wide-character string pointed to by pwcs, or return -1 (if any of the first n wide-character codes in the wide-character string pointed to by pwcs is not a printable wide-character code). ERRORS
No errors are defined. The following sections are informative. EXAMPLES
None. APPLICATION USAGE
This function was removed from the final ISO/IEC 9899:1990/Amendment 1:1995 (E), and the return value for a non-printable wide character is not specified. RATIONALE
