wmemset(3C)

Name

wmemset - set wide-characters in memory

Synopsis

#include <wchar.h>

wchar_t *wmemset(wchar_t *ws, wchar_t wc, size_t n);

Description

The wmemset () function copies the value of wc into each of the first n wide-characters of the object pointed to by ws. This function is not affected by locale and all wchar_t values are treated identically. The null wide-character and wchar_t values not corresponding to valid characters are not treated specially.

If n is 0, ws must be a valid pointer and the function copies zero wide-characters.

Return Values

The wmemset() functions returns the value of ws.

No errors are defined.
