NAME

       tickit_utf8_mbswidth,  tickit_utf8_byte2col, tickit_utf8_col2byte - count the column width
       of a Unicode string

SYNOPSIS

       #include <tickit.h>

       int tickit_utf8_mbswidth(const char *str);

       int tickit_utf8_byte2col(const char *str, size_t byte);
       size_t tickit_utf8_col2byte(const char *str, int col );

       Link with -ltickit.

DESCRIPTION

       These functions are a set of shortcut wrappers around tickit_utf8_count(3) for  performing
       a  single simple counting operation on a given string. When performing multiple operations
       on a given string, it is more efficient to use tickit_utf8_count() directly.

       tickit_utf8_mbswidth() returns the  number  of  columns  wide  the  given  Unicode  string
       consumes.

       tickit_utf8_byte2col()  and tickit_utf8_col2byte() convert between byte and column indexes
       within a given string; returning one when given the other.

RETURN VALUE

       tickit_utf8_mbswidth()  and  tickit_utf8_byte2col()  return  an  integer   column   count.
       tickit_utf8_col2byte() returns an integer byte count.
