wcsftime(3)              BSD Library Functions Manual              wcsftime(3)


NAME

     wcsftime, wcsftime_l -- convert date and time to a wide-character string


LIBRARY

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)


SYNOPSIS

     #include <wchar.h>

     size_t
     wcsftime(wchar_t *restrict wcs, size_t maxsize,
         const wchar_t *restrict format, const struct tm *restrict timeptr);

     #include <wchar.h>
     #include <xlocale.h>

     size_t
     wcsftime_l(wchar_t *restrict wcs, size_t maxsize,
         const wchar_t *restrict format, const struct tm *restrict timeptr,
         locale_t loc);


DESCRIPTION

     The wcsftime() function is equivalent to the strftime() function, except
     for the types of its arguments.  Refer to strftime(3) for a detailed
     description.

     While the wcsftime() function uses the current locale, the wcsftime_l()
     function may be passed a locale directly. See xlocale(3) for more infor-
     mation.


COMPATIBILITY

     Some early implementations of wcsftime() had a format argument with type
     const char *, instead of const wchar_t *.


SEE ALSO

     strftime(3), xlocale(3)


STANDARDS

     The wcsftime() function conforms to ISO/IEC 9899:1999 (``ISO C99'').
