       mbsinit - determine conversion object status

       #include <wchar.h>

       int mbsinit(const mbstate_t *ps);

       If  ps  is  not	a null pointer, the mbsinit() function shall determine whether the object
       pointed to by ps describes an initial conversion state.

       The mbsinit() function shall return non-zero if ps is a null pointer, or if the pointed-to
       object describes an initial conversion state; otherwise, it shall return zero.

       If  an mbstate_t object is altered by any of the functions described as "restartable", and
       is then used with a different character sequence, or in the other conversion direction, or
       with a different LC_CTYPE category setting than on earlier function calls, the behavior is

       No errors are defined.

       The following sections are informative.


       The mbstate_t object is used to describe the current conversion state  from  a  particular
       character  sequence to a wide-character sequence (or vice versa) under the rules of a par-
       ticular setting of the LC_CTYPE category of the current locale.

       The initial conversion state corresponds, for a conversion in  either  direction,  to  the
       beginning  of a new character sequence in the initial shift state. A zero valued mbstate_t
       object is at least one way  to  describe  an  initial  conversion  state.  A  zero  valued
       mbstate_t  object  can be used to initiate conversion involving any character sequence, in
       any LC_CTYPE category setting.
