NAME
       fputs - put a string on a stream

SYNOPSIS
       #include <stdio.h>

       int fputs(const char *restrict s, FILE *restrict stream);

DESCRIPTION
       The  fputs() function shall write the null-terminated string pointed to by s to the stream
       pointed to by stream. The terminating null byte shall not be written.

       The st_ctime and st_mtime fields of the file shall be marked for update between	the  suc-
       cessful	execution  of fputs() 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, fputs() shall return  a  non-negative  number.  Otherwise,  it
       shall  return EOF, set an error indicator for the stream,    and set errno to indicate the
       error.

ERRORS
       Refer to fputc() .

       The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES
   Printing to Standard Output
       The following example gets the current time, converts it to a string using localtime() and
       asctime(),  and	prints	it to standard output using fputs(). It then prints the number of
       minutes to an event for which it is waiting.

	      #include <time.h>
	      #include <stdio.h>
	      ...
	      time_t now;
	      int minutes_to_event;
	      ...
	      time(&now);
	      printf("The time is ");
	      fputs(asctime(localtime(&now)), stdout);
	      printf("There are still %d minutes to the event.\n",
		  minutes_to_event);
	      ...

APPLICATION USAGE
       The puts() function appends a <newline> while fputs() does not.

RATIONALE
       None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
       None.
