       This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual.  The
       Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the
       corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior),
       or the interface may not be implemented on Linux.

NAME         top

       wctrans, wctrans_l — define character mapping

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <wctype.h>

       wctrans_t wctrans(const char *charclass);
       wctrans_t wctrans_l(const char *charclass, locale_t locale);

DESCRIPTION         top

       For wctrans(): The functionality described on this reference page
       is aligned with the ISO C standard. Any conflict between the
       requirements described here and the ISO C standard is
       unintentional. This volume of POSIX.1‐2017 defers to the ISO C

       The wctrans() and wctrans_l() functions are defined for valid
       character mapping names identified in the current locale. The
       charclass is a string identifying a generic character mapping
       name for which codeset-specific information is required. The
       following character mapping names are defined in all locales:
       tolower and toupper.

       These functions shall return a value of type wctrans_t, which can
       be used as the second argument to subsequent calls of towctrans()
       and towctrans_l().

       The wctrans() and wctrans_l() functions shall determine values of
       wctrans_t according to the rules of the coded character set
       defined by character mapping information in the current locale or
       in the locale represented by locale, respectively (category

       The values returned by wctrans() shall be valid until a call to
       setlocale() that modifies the category LC_CTYPE.

       The values returned by wctrans_l() shall be valid only in calls
       to towctrans_l() with a locale represented by locale with the
       same LC_CTYPE category value.

       The behavior is undefined if the locale argument to wctrans_l()
       is the special locale object LC_GLOBAL_LOCALE or is not a valid
       locale object handle.

RETURN VALUE         top

       The wctrans() and wctrans_l() functions shall return 0 and may
       set errno to indicate the error if the given character mapping
       name is not valid for the current locale (category LC_CTYPE);
       otherwise, they shall return a non-zero object of type wctrans_t
       that can be used in calls to towctrans() and towctrans_l().

ERRORS         top

       These functions may fail if:

       EINVAL The character mapping name pointed to by charclass is not
              valid in the current locale.
