wctob - try to represent a wide character as a single byte SYNOPSIS
#include <wchar.h> int wctob(wint_t c); DESCRIPTION
The wctob() function tests whether the multibyte representation of the wide character c, starting in the initial state, consists of a sin- gle byte. If so, it is returned as an unsigned char. Never use this function. It cannot help you in writing internationalized programs. Internationalized programs must never distinguish sin- gle-byte and multibyte characters. RETURN VALUE
The wctob() function returns the single-byte representation of c, if it exists, of EOF otherwise. ATTRIBUTES

POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008, C99. NOTES
The behavior of wctob() depends on the LC_CTYPE category of the current locale. This function should never be used. Internationalized programs must never distinguish single-byte and multibyte characters. Use either wctomb(3) or the thread-safe wcrtomb(3) instead. SEE ALSO

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
wctob -- wide-character to single-byte conversion SYNOPSIS
#include <stdio.h> #include <wchar.h> int wctob(wint_t c); DESCRIPTION
The functionality described on this reference page is aligned with the ISO C standard. Any conflict between the requirements described here and the ISO C standard is unintentional. This volume of POSIX.1-2008 defers to the ISO C standard. The wctob() function shall determine whether c corresponds to a member of the extended character set whose character representation is a single byte when in the initial shift state. The behavior of this function shall be affected by the LC_CTYPE category of the current locale. RETURN VALUE
The wctob() function shall return EOF if c does not correspond to a character with length one in the initial shift state. Otherwise, it shall return the single-byte representation of that character as an unsigned char converted to int. ERRORS
No errors are defined. The following sections are informative. EXAMPLES
