NAME
       wcsftime - convert date and time to a wide-character string

SYNOPSIS
       #include <wchar.h>

       size_t wcsftime(wchar_t *restrict wcs, size_t maxsize,
	      const wchar_t *restrict format, const struct tm *restrict timeptr);

DESCRIPTION
       The wcsftime() function shall be equivalent to the strftime() function, except that:

	* The  argument  wcs  points  to  the initial element of an array of wide characters into
	  which the generated output is to be placed.

	* The argument maxsize indicates the maximum number of wide characters to  be  placed  in
	  the output array.

	* The  argument  format  is a wide-character string and the conversion specifications are
	  replaced by corresponding sequences of wide characters.

	* The return value indicates the number of wide characters placed in the output array.

       If copying takes place between objects that overlap, the behavior is undefined.

RETURN VALUE
       If the total number of resulting wide-character codes including the terminating null wide-
       character code is no more than maxsize, wcsftime() shall return the number of wide-charac-
       ter codes placed into the array pointed to by wcs,  not	including  the	terminating  null
       wide-character code. Otherwise, zero is returned and the contents of the array are unspec-
       ified.

ERRORS
       No errors are defined.
