NAME

       uconvert_size  -  Number  of bytes needed to store a string after conversion. Allegro game
       programming library.

SYNOPSIS

       #include <allegro.h>

       int uconvert_size(const char *s, int type, int newtype);

DESCRIPTION

       Finds out how many bytes are required to store the specified string `s' after a conversion
       from  `type'  to `newtype', including the mandatory zero terminator of the string. You can
       use U_CURRENT for either `type' or `newtype' as a  shortcut  to  represent  whatever  text
       encoding format is currently selected. Example:

          length = uconvert_size(old_string, U_CURRENT, U_UNICODE);
          new_string = malloc(length);
          ustrcpy(new_string, old_string);

RETURN VALUE

       Returns the number of bytes required to store the string after conversion.
