_mbctohira, _mbctohira_l, _mbctokata, _mbctokata_l
Converts between hiragana and katakana characters.
unsigned int _mbctohira( unsigned int c ); unsigned int _mbctohira_l( unsigned int c, _locale_t locale ); unsigned int _mbctokata( unsigned int c ); unsigned int _mbctokata_l( unsigned int c, _locale_t locale );
The _mbctohira and_mbctokata functions test a character c and, if possible, apply one of the following conversions.
Multibyte katakana to multibyte hiragana.
Multibyte hiragana to multibyte katakana.
The output value is affected by the setting of the LC_CTYPE category setting of the locale; see setlocale for more information. The versions of these functions without the _l suffix use the current locale for this locale-dependent behavior; the versions with the _l suffix are identical except that they use the locale parameter passed in instead. For more information, see Locale.
In previous versions, _mbctohira was called jtohira and _mbctokata was called jtokata. For new code, use the new names instead.
