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 conversion.
