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 <&lt;limits.h>&gt;

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

RETURN VALUE
       A constant integer greater than zero.

CONFORMING TO
       C99, POSIX.1-2001.

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