NAME fputwc - write a wide character to a FILE stream

SYNOPSIS #include <stdio.h> #include <wchar.h>

wint_t fputwc(wchar_t wc, FILE *stream); wint_t putwc(wchar_t wc, FILE *stream);

DESCRIPTION The fputwc() function is the wide-character equivalent of the fputc() function. It writes the wide character wc to stream. If ferror(stream) becomes true, it returns WEOF. If a wide character conversion error occurs, it sets errno to EILSEQ and returns WEOF. Otherwise it returns wc.

The putwc() function or macro functions identically to fputwc(). It may be implemented as a macro, and may evaluate its argument more than once. There is no reason ever to use it.

For non-locking counterparts, see unlocked_stdio(3).

RETURN VALUE The fputwc() function returns wc if no error occurred, or WEOF to indi- cate an error.

ERRORS Apart from the usual ones, there is

EILSEQ Conversion of wc to the streams encoding fails.


NOTES The behaviour of fputwc() depends on the LC_CTYPE category of the cur- rent locale.

In the absence of additional information passed to the fopen() call, it is reasonable to expect that fputwc() will actually write the multibyte sequence corresponding to the wide character wc.
