towctrans - wide-character transliteration

Standard C library (libc, -lc)

#include <wctype.h>
wint_t towctrans(wint_t wc, wctrans_t desc);

If wc is a wide character, then the towctrans() function translates it according to the transliteration descriptor desc. If wc is WEOF, WEOF is returned.

desc must be a transliteration descriptor returned by the wctrans(3) function.

The towctrans() function returns the translated wide character, or WEOF if wc is WEOF.
