Description

NAME
       stringprep_utf8_to_ucs4 - API function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <stringprep.h>

       uint32_t  *  stringprep_utf8_to_ucs4(const  char  *  str,  ssize_t len,
       size_t * items_written);

ARGUMENTS
       const char * str
                   a UTF-8 encoded string

       ssize_t len the maximum length of  str to use. If  len <  0,  then  the
                   string is nul-terminated.

       size_t * items_written
                   location  to  store the number of characters in the result,
                   or NULL.

DESCRIPTION
       Convert a string from UTF-8 to a 32-bit fixed width  representation  as
       UCS-4.   The  function  now  performs error checking to verify that the
       input is valid UTF-8 (before it was documented to not do  error  check-
       ing).

       Return  value: a pointer to a newly allocated UCS-4 string.  This value
       must be deallocated by the caller.
