NAME
       fwide - set stream orientation

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

       int fwide(FILE *stream, int mode);

DESCRIPTION
       The  fwide()  function shall determine the orientation of the stream pointed to by stream.
       If mode is greater than zero, the function first attempts to  make  the	stream	wide-ori-
       ented.	If  mode  is less than zero, the function first attempts to make the stream byte-
       oriented. Otherwise, mode is zero and the function does not alter the orientation  of  the
       stream.

       If the orientation of the stream has already been determined, fwide() shall not change it.

       Since  no  return  value is reserved to indicate an error, an application wishing to check
       for error situations should set errno to 0, then call fwide(), then check errno, and if it
       is non-zero, assume an error has occurred.

RETURN VALUE
       The fwide() function shall return a value greater than zero if, after the call, the stream
       has wide-orientation, a value less than zero if the stream has byte-orientation,  or  zero
       if the stream has no orientation.

ERRORS
       The fwide() function may fail if:

       EBADF  The stream argument is not a valid stream.

       The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES
       None.

APPLICATION USAGE
       A  call	to fwide() with mode set to zero can be used to determine the current orientation
       of a stream.

RATIONALE
       None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
       None.
