do_uconvert(3alleg4)             Allegro manual             do_uconvert(3alleg4)



NAME
       do_uconvert - Converts a string to another encoding format. Allegro game
       programming library.

SYNOPSIS
       #include <allegro.h>


       void do_uconvert(const char *s, int type, char *buf, int newtype, int
       size);

DESCRIPTION
       Converts the specified string `s' from `type' to `newtype', storing at
       most `size' bytes into the output `buf'. The type parameters can use the
       value U_CURRENT as a shortcut to represent the currently selected
       encoding format. Example:

          char temp_string[256];
          do_uconvert(input_string, U_CURRENT, temp_string, U_ASCII, 256);

       Note that, even for empty strings, your destination string must have at
       least enough bytes to store the terminating null character of the string,
       and your parameter `size' must reflect this. Otherwise, the debug version
       of Allegro will abort at an assertion, and the release version of Allegro
       will overrun the destination buffer.
