Linux 2.6 - man page for fputwc (linux section 3posix)

FPUTWC(P)			    POSIX Programmer's Manual				FPUTWC(P)

       fputwc - put a wide-character code on a stream

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

       wint_t fputwc(wchar_t wc, FILE *stream);

       The  fputwc()  function shall write the character corresponding to the wide-character code
       wc to the output stream pointed to by stream, at the position indicated by the  associated
       file-position  indicator for the stream (if defined), and advances the indicator appropri-
       ately. If the file cannot support positioning requests, or if the stream was  opened  with
       append  mode,  the  character  is  appended to the output stream. If an error occurs while
       writing the character, the shift state of the output file is left in an undefined state.

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

       Upon successful completion, fputwc() shall return wc.  Otherwise, it  shall  return  WEOF,
       the error indicator for the stream shall be set,    and errno shall be set to indicate the

       The fputwc() function shall fail if either  the	stream	is  unbuffered	or  data  in  the
       stream's buffer needs to be written, 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-

       EFBIG  An  attempt  was	made to write to a file that exceeds the maximum file size or 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 associated with the corresponding stream.

       EILSEQ The wide-character code wc does not correspond to a valid character.

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

       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

       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 fputwc() 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.
