NAME
       __fbufsize,   __flbf,   __fpending,   __fpurge,	__freadable,  __freading,  __fsetlocking,
       __fwritable, __fwriting, _flushlbf - interfaces to stdio FILE structure

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

       size_t __fbufsize(FILE *stream);
       size_t __fpending(FILE *stream);
       int __flbf(FILE *stream);
       int __freadable(FILE *stream);
       int __fwritable(FILE *stream);
       int __freading(FILE *stream);
       int __fwriting(FILE *stream);
       int __fsetlocking(FILE *stream, int type);
       void _flushlbf(void);
       void __fpurge(FILE *stream);

DESCRIPTION
       Solaris introduced routines to allow portable access to the internals of the  FILE  struc-
       ture, and glibc also implemented these.

       The  __fbufsize()  function  returns  the  size	of the buffer currently used by the given
       stream.

       The __fpending() function returns the number of bytes in the output buffer.  For wide-ori-
       ented streams the unit is wide characters.  This function is undefined on buffers in read-
       ing mode, or opened read-only.

       The __flbf() function returns a nonzero value if the stream  is	line-buffered,	and  zero
       otherwise.

       The  __freadable() function returns a nonzero value if the stream allows reading, and zero
       otherwise.

       The __fwritable() function returns a nonzero value if the stream allows writing, and  zero
       otherwise.

       The  __freading()  function  returns a nonzero value if the stream is read-only, or if the
       last operation on the stream was a read operation, and zero otherwise.

       The __fwriting() function returns a nonzero value if the stream is write-only (or  append-
       only), or if the last operation on the stream was a write operation, and zero otherwise.

       The  __fsetlocking()  function  can  be	used to select the desired type of locking on the
       stream.	It returns the current type.  The type argument can take the following three val-
       ues:

       FSETLOCKING_INTERNAL
	      Perform implicit locking around every operation on the given stream (except for the
	      *_unlocked ones).  This is the default.

       FSETLOCKING_BYCALLER
	      The caller will take care of the locking (possibly using flockfile(3) in case there
	      is  more	than  one  thread),  and the stdio routines will not do locking until the
	      state is reset to FSETLOCKING_INTERNAL.

       FSETLOCKING_QUERY
	      Don't change the type of locking.  (Only return it.)

       The _flushlbf() function flushes all line-buffered streams.  (Presumably so that output to
       a terminal is forced out, say before reading keyboard input.)

       The __fpurge() function discards the contents of the stream's buffer.

ATTRIBUTES
   Multithreading (see pthreads(7))
       The  __fbufsize(),  __fpending(), __fpurge() and __fsetlocking() functions do not lock the
       stream, so they are not thread-safe.

       The __flbf(), __freadable(), __freading(),  __fwritable(),  __fwriting()  and  _flushlbf()
       functions are thread-safe.
