wcsnlen - determine the length of a fixed-size wide-character string SYNOPSIS
#include <wchar.h> size_t wcsnlen(const wchar_t *s, size_t maxlen); Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)): wcsnlen(): Since glibc 2.10: _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200809L Before glibc 2.10: _GNU_SOURCE DESCRIPTION
The wcsnlen() function is the wide-character equivalent of the strnlen(3) function. It returns the number of wide-characters in the string pointed to by s, not including the terminating null wide character (L''), but at most maxlen wide characters (note: this parameter is not a byte count). In doing this, wcsnlen() looks at only the first maxlen wide characters at s and never beyond s+maxlen. RETURN VALUE
The wcsnlen() function returns wcslen(s), if that is less than maxlen, or maxlen if there is no null wide character among the first maxlen wide characters pointed to by s. VERSIONS
The wcsnlen() function is provided in glibc since version 2.1. ATTRIBUTES

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
wcslen, wcsnlen -- get length of a fixed-sized wide-character string SYNOPSIS
#include <wchar.h> size_t wcslen(const wchar_t *ws); size_t wcsnlen(const wchar_t *ws, size_t maxlen); DESCRIPTION
For wcslen(): 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 wcslen() function shall compute the number of wide-character codes in the wide-character string to which ws points, not including the terminating null wide-character code. The wcsnlen() function shall compute the smaller of the number of wide characters in the string to which ws points, not including the ter- minating null wide-character code, and the value of maxlen. The wcsnlen() function shall never examine more than the first maxlen charac- ters of the wide-character string pointed to by ws. RETURN VALUE
The wcslen() function shall return the length of ws. The wcsnlen() function shall return an integer containing the smaller of either the length of the wide-character string pointed to by ws or maxlen. No return values are reserved to indicate an error. ERRORS
No errors are defined. The following sections are informative. EXAMPLES
