NAME
       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 multi-byte representation of the wide character c,
       starting in the initial state, consists of a single byte. If so,  it  is  returned  as  an
       unsigned char.

       Never  use this function. It cannot help you in writing internationalized programs. Inter-
       nationalized programs must never distinguish single-byte and multi-byte characters.

RETURN VALUE
       The wctob function returns the single-byte representation of c, if it exists, of EOF  oth-
       erwise.

CONFORMING TO
       ISO/ANSI C, UNIX98

SEE ALSO
       wctomb(3)

NOTES
       The behaviour of wctob depends on the LC_CTYPE category of the current locale.

       This function should never be used. Internationalized programs must never distinguish sin-
       gle-byte and multi-byte characters. Use the function wctomb instead.
