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 );
The _mbctombb and _mbctombb_lfunctions 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. For more information, see Locale.
In previous versions, _mbctombb was called zentohan. Use _mbctombb instead.
