uconvert_size(3)		Allegro	manual		      uconvert_size(3)

NAME
       uconvert_size  -	Number of bytes	needed to store	a string after conver-
       sion. Allegro game programming library.

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<allegro.h>

       int uconvert_size(const char *s,	int type, int newtype);

DESCRIPTION
       Finds out how many bytes	are required to	store the specified string `s'
       after  a	 conversion  from `type' to `newtype', including the mandatory
       zero terminator of the string. You can use U_CURRENT for	either	`type'
       or  `newtype'  as a shortcut to represent whatever text encoding	format
       is currently selected. Example:

	  length = uconvert_size(old_string, U_CURRENT,	U_UNICODE);
	  new_string = malloc(length);
	  ustrcpy(new_string, old_string);

RETURN VALUE
       Returns the number of bytes required to store the string	after  conver-
       sion.
