#include <wchar.h>

btowc(int c);

The btowc() function converts a single byte character c in the initial shift state of the current locale to a corresponding wide character.

The behaviour of the btowc() is affected by the LC_CTYPE category of the current locale.

The btowc() function returns:

If c is EOF or if (unsigned char) c does not correspond to a valid single byte character representation.
(otherwise)
A wide character corresponding to c.

No errors are defined.
