U_STABLE int64_t U_EXPORT2 utext_getPreviousNativeIndex ( UText ut  ) 

Get the native index of the character preceeding the current position. If the iteration position is already at the start of the text, zero is returned. The value returned is the same as that obtained from the following sequence, but without the side effect of changing the iteration position.

    UText  *ut = whatever;

This function is most useful during forwards iteration, where it will get the native index of the character most recently returned from utext_next().

ut the text to be accessed
the native index of the character preceeding the current index position, or zero if the current position is at the start of the text. ICU 3.6

    //     and the preceding character is not supplementary.
