Linux 2.6 - man page for wchar.h (linux section 7posix)

<wchar.h>(P)			    POSIX Programmer's Manual			     <wchar.h>(P)

       wchar.h - wide-character handling

       #include <wchar.h>

       Some  of  the  functionality  described on this reference page extends the ISO C standard.
       Applications shall define the appropriate feature test macro (see  the  System  Interfaces
       volume  of  IEEE Std 1003.1-2001,  Section 2.2, The Compilation Environment) to enable the
       visibility of these symbols in this header.

       The <wchar.h> header shall define the following types:

	      As described in <stddef.h> .

       wint_t An integer type capable of storing any valid value of wchar_t or WEOF.

	      A scalar type of a data object that can hold values which represent locale-specific
	      character classification.

	      An object type other than an array type that can hold the conversion state informa-
	      tion necessary to convert between sequences of (possibly multi-byte) characters and
	      wide characters.	  If a codeset is being used such that an mbstate_t needs to pre-
	      serve more than 2 levels of reserved state, the results are unspecified.

       FILE   As described in <stdio.h> .

       size_t As described in <stddef.h> .

	      As described in <stdarg.h> .

       The implementation shall support one or more programming environments in which  the  width
       of  wint_t is no greater than the width of type long. The names of these programming envi-
       ronments can be obtained using the confstr() function or the getconf utility.

       The following shall be declared as functions and may also be defined as	macros.  Function
       prototypes shall be provided.

       The <wchar.h> header shall define the following macros:

	      The maximum value representable by an object of type wchar_t.

	      The minimum value representable by an object of type wchar_t.

       WEOF   Constant	expression  of	type  wint_t  that is returned by several WP functions to
	      indicate end-of-file.

       NULL   As described in <stddef.h> .

       The tag tm shall be declared as naming an incomplete structure type, the contents of which
       are described in the header <time.h> .

       Inclusion of the <wchar.h> header may make visible all symbols from the headers <ctype.h>,
       <string.h>, <stdarg.h>, <stddef.h>, <stdio.h>, <stdlib.h>, and <time.h>.

       The following sections are informative.

       The iswblank() function was a late addition to the ISO C standard and  was  introduced  at
       the  same  time	as  the  ISO C	standard introduced <wctype.h>, which contains all of the
       isw*() functions. The Open Group Base Specifications had previously aligned with  the  MSE
       working	draft  and  had  introduced  the rest of the isw*() functions into <wchar.h>. For
       backwards-compatibility, the original set of isw*()  functions,	without  iswblank(),  are
       permitted (as an XSI extension) in <wchar.h>. For maximum portability, applications should
       include <wctype.h> in order to obtain declarations for the isw*() functions.

       In the ISO C standard, the symbols referenced as XSI extensions are in  <wctype.h>.  Their
       presence here is thus an extension.
