SYNOPSIS
       #define _XOPEN_SOURCE             /* See feature_test_macros(7) */

       int wcswidth(const wchar_t *s, size_t n);

DESCRIPTION

       sent  the  wide-character  string  pointed  to by s, but at most n wide
       characters.  If a nonprintable wide character occurs among these  char-
       acters, -1 is returned.

       wide-character string s, truncated to at most length n.

CONFORMING TO
       POSIX.1-2001.

       The behavior of wcswidth() depends on the LC_CTYPE category of the cur-
       rent locale.
