Converts date and time into a wide character string.
Standard C Library (libc. a)
size_t wcsftime (WcString, Maxsize, Format, TimPtr)
wchar_t * WcString;
const wchar_t * Format;
const struct tm * TimPtr;
The wcsftime function is equivalent to the strftime function, except that:
If copying takes place between objects that overlap, the behavior is undefined.
|WcString||Contains the output of the wcsftime subroutine.|
|Maxsize||Specifies the maximum number of bytes (including the wide character null-terminating byte) that may be placed in the WcString parameter.|
|Format||Specifiers are the same as in strftime (strftime Subroutine) function.|
|TimPtr||Contains the data to be converted by the wcsftime subroutine.|
If successful, and if the number of resulting wide characters (including the wide character null-terminating byte) is no more than the number of bytes specified by the Maxsize parameter, the wcsftime subroutine returns the number of wide characters (not including the wide character null-terminating byte) placed in the WcString parameter. Otherwise, 0 is returned and the contents of the WcString parameter are indeterminate.
This subroutine is part of Base Operating System (BOS) Runtime.
The mbstowcs subroutine, strfmon (strfmon Subroutine) subroutine, strftime (strftime Subroutine) subroutine, strptime (strptime Subroutine) subroutine.
