NAME
       vfscanf, vscanf, vsscanf - format input of a stdarg argument list

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

       int vfscanf(FILE *restrict stream, const char *restrict format,
	      va_list arg);
       int vscanf(const char *restrict format, va_list arg);
       int vsscanf(const char *restrict s, const char *restrict format,
	      va_list arg);

DESCRIPTION
       The  vscanf(),  vfscanf(),  and	vsscanf()  functions  shall be equivalent to the scanf(),
       fscanf(), and sscanf() functions, respectively, except that instead of being called with a
       variable  number  of  arguments,  they  are called with an argument list as defined in the
       <stdarg.h> header. These functions shall not invoke the va_end macro. As  these	functions
       invoke the va_arg macro, the value of ap after the return is unspecified.

RETURN VALUE
       Refer to fscanf() .

ERRORS
       Refer to fscanf() .

       The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES
       None.

APPLICATION USAGE
       Applications using these functions should call va_end( ap) afterwards to clean up.

RATIONALE
       None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
       None.
