MB_LEN_MAX(3)			    Linux Programmer's Manual			    MB_LEN_MAX(3)

NAME
       MB_LEN_MAX - maximum multibyte length of a character across all locales

SYNOPSIS
       #include <limits.h>

DESCRIPTION
       The MB_LEN_MAX macro is the upper bound for the number of bytes needed to represent a sin-
       gle wide character, across all locales.

RETURN VALUE
       A constant integer >= 1.

CONFORMING TO
       ANSI C, POSIX.1

NOTES
       The entities MB_LEN_MAX and sizeof(wchar_t)  are  totally  unrelated.  In  the  GNU  libc,
       MB_LEN_MAX is typically 6 while sizeof(wchar_t) is 4.
