getwchar - read a wide character from standard input
The getwchar() function is the wide-character equivalent of the getchar(3) function. It
reads a wide character from stdin and returns it. If the end of stream is reached, or if
ferror(stdin) becomes true, it returns WEOF. If a wide-character conversion error occurs,
it sets errno to EILSEQ and returns WEOF.
For a nonlocking counterpart, see unlocked_stdio(3).
The getwchar() function returns the next wide-character from standard input, or WEOF.
The behavior of getwchar() depends on the LC_CTYPE category of the current locale.
It is reasonable to expect that getwchar() will actually read a multibyte sequence from
standard input and then convert it to a wide character.
