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

       traditional 8-bit encoded characters.

CONFORMING TO         top
