NAME

       MB_LEN_MAX - maximum multibyte length of a character across all locales

SYNOPSIS

       #include <limits.h>

DESCRIPTION

       The  MB_LEN_MAX  macro  is  the  maximum number of bytes needed to represent a single wide
       character, in any of the supported locales.

RETURN VALUE

       A constant integer greater than zero.

CONFORMING TO

       POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008, C99.

NOTES

       The entities MB_LEN_MAX and sizeof(wchar_t) are totally unrelated.  In  glibc,  MB_LEN_MAX
       is typically 16 (6 in glibc versions earlier than 2.2), while sizeof(wchar_t) is 4.

SEE ALSO
