NAME
       fputc - put a byte on a stream

SYNOPSIS
       #include <stdio.h>

       int fputc(int c, FILE *stream);

DESCRIPTION
       The  fputc()  function shall write the byte specified by c (converted to an unsigned char)
       to the output stream pointed to by stream, at the position  indicated  by  the  associated
       file-position  indicator  for  the  stream  (if	defined), and shall advance the indicator
       appropriately. If the file cannot support positioning  requests,  or  if  the  stream  was
       opened with append mode, the byte shall be appended to the output stream.

       The  st_ctime  and st_mtime fields of the file shall be marked for update between the suc-
       cessful execution of fputc() and the next successful completion of a call to  fflush()  or
       fclose() on the same stream or a call to exit() or abort().

RETURN VALUE
       Upon  successful  completion, fputc() shall return the value it has written. Otherwise, it
       shall return EOF, the error indicator for the stream shall be set,    and errno	shall  be
       set to indicate the error.

ERRORS
       The  fputc() function shall fail if either the stream is unbuffered or the stream's buffer
       needs to be flushed, and:

       EAGAIN The O_NONBLOCK flag is set for  the  file  descriptor  underlying  stream  and  the
	      process would be delayed in the write operation.

       EBADF  The file descriptor underlying stream is not a valid file descriptor open for writ-
	      ing.

       EFBIG  An attempt was made to write to a file that exceeds the maximum file size.

       EFBIG  An attempt was made to write to a file that exceeds the process' file size limit.

       EFBIG  The file is a regular file and an attempt was made to write at or beyond the offset
	      maximum.

       EINTR  The  write operation was terminated due to the receipt of a signal, and no data was
	      transferred.

       EIO    A physical I/O error has occurred, or the process  is  a	member	of  a  background
	      process  group  attempting to write to its controlling terminal, TOSTOP is set, the
	      process is neither ignoring nor blocking SIGTTOU, and  the  process  group  of  the
	      process  is orphaned.  This error may also be returned under implementation-defined
	      conditions.

       ENOSPC There was no free space remaining on the device containing the file.

       EPIPE  An attempt is made to write to a pipe or FIFO that is not open for reading  by  any
	      process. A SIGPIPE signal shall also be sent to the thread.

       The fputc() function may fail if:

       ENOMEM Insufficient storage space is available.

       ENXIO  A request was made of a nonexistent device, or the request was outside the capabil-
	      ities of the device.
