_mbctombb, _mbctombb_l 

Converts a double-byte multibyte character to a corresponding single-byte multibyte character.


unsigned int _mbctombb(
   unsigned int c 
);
unsigned int _mbctombb_l(
   unsigned int c,
   _locale_t locale
);

Parameters

c

Multibyte character to convert.

locale

Locale to use.

If successful, _mbctombb and _mbctombb_l returns the single-byte character that corresponds to c; otherwise it returns c.

The _mbctombb and _mbctombb_l functions convert a given multibyte character to a corresponding single-byte multibyte character. Characters must correspond to single-byte characters within the range 0x20 – 0x7E or 0xA1 – 0xDF to be converted.

The output value is affected by the setting of the LC_CTYPE category setting of the locale; see setlocale for more information. The version of this function without the _l suffix uses the current locale for this locale-dependent behavior; the version with the _l suffix is identical except that it use the locale parameter passed in instead.

In previous versions, _mbctombb was called zentohan. Use _mbctombb instead.
