NAMEwcswidth - determine columns needed for a fixed-size wide-character string
SYNOPSIS#define _XOPEN_SOURCE /* See feature_test_macros(7) */ #include <wchar.h> int wcswidth(const wchar_t *s, size_t n);
DESCRIPTIONThe wcswidth() function returns the number of columns needed to represent the wide-character string pointed to by s, but at most n wide characters. If a nonprintable wide character occurs among these characters, -1 is returned.
RETURN VALUEThe wcswidth() function returns the number of column positions for the wide-character string s, truncated to at most length n.
NOTESThe behavior of wcswidth() depends on the LC_CTYPE category of the current locale.
