mconv_getc(3) Read a character via a code converter.


int mconv_getc (MConverter * converter)


Read a character via a code converter. The mconv_getc() function reads one character from the buffer area or the stream that is currently bound to code converter converter. The decoder of converter is used to decode the byte sequence. The internal status of converter is updated appropriately.


If the operation was successful, mconv_getc() returns the character read in. If the input source reaches EOF, it returns EOF without changing the external variable merror_code. If an error is detected, it returns EOF and assigns an error code to merror_code.
