PUTWCHAR(3)			    Linux Programmer's Manual			      PUTWCHAR(3)

NAME
       putwchar - write a wide character to standard output

SYNOPSIS
       #include <wchar.h>

       wint_t putwchar(wchar_t wc);

DESCRIPTION
       The  putwchar()	function is the wide-character equivalent of the putchar(3) function.  It
       writes the wide character wc to stdout.	If ferror(stdout) becomes true, it returns  WEOF.
       If  a  wide  character  conversion error occurs, it sets errno to EILSEQ and returns WEOF.
       Otherwise it returns wc.

       For a nonlocking counterpart, see unlocked_stdio(3).

RETURN VALUE
       The putwchar() function returns wc if no error occurred, or WEOF to indicate an error.

CONFORMING TO
       C99.

NOTES
       The behavior of putwchar() depends on the LC_CTYPE category of the current locale.

       It is reasonable to expect that putwchar() will actually write the multibyte sequence cor-
       responding to the wide character wc.
