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

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

NAME
       rewind - reset the file position indicator in a stream

SYNOPSIS
       #include <stdio.h>

       void rewind(FILE *stream);

DESCRIPTION
       The call:

	      rewind(stream)

       shall be equivalent to:

	      (void) fseek(stream, 0L, SEEK_SET)

       except that rewind() shall also clear the error indicator.

       Since  rewind()	does  not  return a value, an application wishing to detect errors should
       clear errno, then call rewind(), and if errno is non-zero, assume an error has occurred.

RETURN VALUE
       The rewind() function shall not return a value.

ERRORS
       Refer to fseek() with the exception of [EINVAL] which does not apply.

       The following sections are informative.

APPLICATION USAGE
       None.

RATIONALE
       None.
