MB_CUR_MAX  -  maximum  length of a multibyte character in
       the current locale


SYNOPSIS

       #include <stdlib.h>


DESCRIPTION

       The MB_CUR_MAX macro defines an integer expression  giving
       the  maximum  number of bytes needed to represent a single
       wide character in the current locale.  It is locale depen­
       dent and therefore not a compile-time constant.


RETURN VALUE

       An  integer  >=  1 and <= MB_LEN_MAX.  The value 1 denotes
       traditional 8-bit encoded characters.


CONFORMING TO

       ANSI C, POSIX.1
