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



NAME
       MB_CUR_MAX  -  maximum  length  of a multibyte character in the current
       locale

SYNOPSIS
       #include <&lt;stdlib.h>&gt;

DESCRIPTION
       The MB_CUR_MAX macro defines an integer expression giving  the  maximum
       number of bytes needed to represent a single wide character in the cur-
       rent locale.  It is locale dependent and therefore not  a  compile-time
       constant.

RETURN VALUE
       An  integer  in  the range [1, MB_LEN_MAX].  The value 1 denotes tradi-
       tional 8-bit encoded characters.

CONFORMING TO
       C99, POSIX.1-2001.
