NAME fgetws - get a wide-character string from a stream
SYNOPSIS #include <stdio.h> #include <wchar.h>
wchar_t *fgetws(wchar_t *restrict ws, int n, FILE *restrict stream);
DESCRIPTION The fgetws() function shall read characters from the stream, convert these to the corresponding wide-character codes, place them in the wchar_t array pointed to by ws, until n-1 characters are read, or a <newline> is read, converted, and transferred to ws, or an end-of-file condition is encountered. The wide-character string, ws, shall then be terminated with a null wide-character code.
If an error occurs, the resulting value of the file position indicator for the stream is unspecified.
The fgetws() function may mark the st_atime field of the file associ- ated with stream for update. The st_atime field shall be marked for update by the first successful execution of fgetc(), fgets(), fgetwc(), fgetws(), fread(), fscanf(), getc(), getchar(), gets(), or scanf() using stream that returns data not supplied by a prior call to ungetc() or ungetwc().
RETURN VALUE Upon successful completion, fgetws() shall return ws. If the stream is at end-of-file, the end-of-file indicator for the stream shall be set and fgetws() shall return a null pointer. If a read error occurs, the error indicator for the stream shall be set, fgetws() shall return a null pointer, and shall set errno to indicate the error.
ERRORS Refer to fgetwc().
