>Environment:
System: Linux kiste 2.4.18 #8 Sat Mar 9 15:33:15 CET 2002 i686 unknown
Architecture: i686
GNU ld version 2.13.90.0.4 20020814
host: i686-pc-linux-gnu
build: i686-pc-linux-gnu
target: i686-pc-linux-gnu

>Description:
The values obtained for the smallest wchar_t from 
the numeric_limits facility and the wchar.h interface (WCHAR_MIN)
differ. The values WCHAR_MAX and numeric_limits<wchar_t>::max() are
not the same, either.
>How-To-Repeat:
source code wlimit.C
#include <wchar.h>
#include <limits>
#include <iostream>

int main()
{
  wchar_t wmin = WCHAR_MIN;
  wchar_t limits_wmin = std::numeric_limits<wchar_t>::min();

  std::cout << "Are WCHAR_MIN:" << wmin
       << " and numeric_limits<wchar_t>::min():" 
	    << limits_wmin << " the same? ";  
  (wmin == limits_wmin) ? 
    (std::cout << "yes\n") : (std::cout << "no\n");

  wchar_t wmax = WCHAR_MAX;
  wchar_t limits_wmax = std::numeric_limits<wchar_t>::max();

  std::cout << "Are WCHAR_MAX:" << wmax
       << " and numeric_limits<wchar_t>::max():" 
	    << limits_wmax << " the same? ";  
  (wmin == limits_wmax) ? 
    (std::cout << "yes\n") : (std::cout << "no\n");

}
