GETWIDTH(3C) Standard C Library Functions GETWIDTH(3C)


NAME


getwidth - get codeset information

SYNOPSIS


#include <euc.h>
#include <getwidth.h>

void getwidth(eucwidth_t *ptr);


DESCRIPTION


The getwidth() function reads the character class table for the current
locale to get information on the supplementary codesets. getwidth() sets
this information into the struct eucwidth_t. This struct is defined in
<euc.h> and has the following members:

short int _eucw1,_eucw2,_eucw3;
short int _scrw1,_scrw2,_scrw3;
short int _pcw;
char _multibyte;


Codeset width values for supplementary codesets 1, 2, and 3 are set in
_eucw1, _eucw2, and _eucw3, respectively. Screen width values for
supplementary codesets 1, 2, and 3 are set in _scrw1, _scrw2, and _scrw3,
respectively.


The width of Extended Unix Code (EUC) Process Code is set in _pcw. The
_multibyte entry is set to 1 if multibyte characters are used, and set to
0 if only single-byte characters are used.

NOTES


The getwidth() function can be used safely in a multithreaded
application, as long as setlocale(3C) is not being called to change the
locale.


The getwidth() function will only work with EUC locales.
