       ungetc - push byte back into input stream

       #include <stdio.h>

       int ungetc(int c, FILE *stream);

       The  ungetc()  function shall push the byte specified by c (converted to an unsigned char)
       back onto the input stream pointed to by stream. The pushed-back bytes shall  be  returned
       by  subsequent  reads  on  that stream in the reverse order of their pushing. A successful
       intervening call (with the stream pointed to by stream) to a file-positioning  function	(
       fseek(),  fsetpos(),  or rewind()) shall discard any pushed-back bytes for the stream. The
       external storage corresponding to the stream shall be unchanged.

       One byte of push-back shall be provided. If ungetc() is called too many times on the  same
       stream without an intervening read or file-positioning operation on that stream, the oper-
       ation may fail.

       If the value of c equals that of the macro EOF, the operation shall  fail  and  the  input
       stream shall be left unchanged.

       A  successful  call  to ungetc() shall clear the end-of-file indicator for the stream. The
       value of the file-position indicator for  the  stream  after  reading  or  discarding  all
       pushed-back bytes shall be the same as it was before the bytes were pushed back. The file-
       position indicator is decremented by each successful call to ungetc(); if its value was	0
       before a call, its value is unspecified after the call.

       Upon  successful  completion, ungetc() shall return the byte pushed back after conversion.
       Otherwise, it shall return EOF.

       No errors are defined.
