SuSE 11.3 - man page for wctob (suse section 3)

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

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 multibyte representation of the wide character c, starting in the ini- tial 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. Internationalized pro- grams must never distinguish single-byte and multibyte characters.
RETURN VALUE
The wctob() function returns the single-byte representation of c, if it exists, of EOF otherwise.
CONFORMING TO
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 multi- byte characters. Use the function wctomb(3) instead.
