size_t wcsxfrm(wchar_t *restrict ws1, const wchar_t *restrict ws2,
The wcsxfrm() function shall transform the wide-character string
pointed to by ws2 and place the resulting wide-character string into
the array pointed to by ws1. The transformation shall be such that if
wcscmp() is applied to two transformed wide strings, it shall return a
value greater than, equal to, or less than 0, corresponding to the
result of wcscoll() applied to the same two original wide-character
strings. No more than n wide-character codes shall be placed into the
resulting array pointed to by ws1, including the terminating null wide-
character code. If n is 0, ws1 is permitted to be a null pointer. If
copying takes place between objects that overlap, the behavior is unde-
The wcsxfrm() function shall not change the setting of errno if suc-
Since no return value is reserved to indicate an error, an application
wishing to check for error situations should set errno to 0, then call
wcsxfrm(), then check errno.
The wcsxfrm() function shall return the length of the transformed wide-
character string (not including the terminating null wide-character
code). If the value returned is n or more, the contents of the array
pointed to by ws1 are unspecified.
On error, the wcsxfrm() function may set errno, but no return value is
reserved to indicate an error.
The wcsxfrm() function may fail if:
EINVAL The wide-character string pointed to by ws2 contains wide-char-
acter codes outside the domain of the collating sequence.
The following sections are informative.
The transformation function is such that two transformed wide-character
strings can be ordered by wcscmp() as appropriate to collating sequence
information in the program's locale (category LC_COLLATE ).
