WSTRING(3C) Standard C Library Functions WSTRING(3C)


wstring, wscasecmp, wsncasecmp, wsdup, wscol - Process Code string


#include <widec.h>

int wscasecmp(const wchar_t *s1, const wchar_t *s2);

int wsncasecmp(const wchar_t *s1, const wchar_t *s2, int n);

wchar_t *wsdup(const wchar_t *s);

int wscol(const wchar_t *s);


These functions operate on Process Code strings terminated by wchar_t
null characters. During appending or copying, these routines do not
check for an overflow condition of the receiving string. In the
following, s, s1, and s2 point to Process Code strings terminated by a
wchar_t null.

wscasecmp(), wsncasecmp()
The wscasecmp() function compares its arguments, ignoring case, and
returns an integer greater than, equal to, or less than 0, depending upon
whether s1 is lexicographically greater than, equal to, or less than s2.
It makes the same comparison but compares at most n Process Code
characters. The four Extended Unix Code (EUC) codesets are ordered from
lowest to highest as 0, 2, 3, 1 when characters from different codesets
are compared.

The wsdup() function returns a pointer to a new Process Code string,
which is a duplicate of the string pointed to by s. The space for the new
string is obtained using malloc(3C). If the new string cannot be created,
a null pointer is returned.

The wscol() function returns the screen display width (in columns) of the
Process Code string s.
