     fgetwln -- get a line of wide characters from a stream

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

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

     wchar_t *
     fgetwln(FILE * restrict stream, size_t * restrict len);

     The fgetwln() function returns a pointer to the next line from the stream referenced by
     stream.  This line is not a standard wide-character string as it does not end with a termi-
     nating null wide character.  The length of the line, including the final newline, is stored
     in the memory location to which len points.  (Note, however, that if the line is the last in
     a file that does not end in a newline, the returned text will not contain a newline.)

     Upon successful completion a pointer is returned; this pointer becomes invalid after the
     next I/O operation on stream (whether successful or not) or as soon as the stream is closed.
     Otherwise, NULL is returned.  The fgetwln() function does not distinguish between end-of-
     file and error; the routines feof(3) and ferror(3) must be used to determine which occurred.
     If an error occurs, the global variable errno is set to indicate the error.  The end-of-file
     condition is remembered, even on a terminal, and all subsequent attempts to read will return
     NULL until the condition is cleared with clearerr(3).

     The text to which the returned pointer points may be modified, provided that no changes are
     made beyond the returned size.  These changes are lost as soon as the pointer becomes

     [EBADF]		The argument stream is not a stream open for reading.

     The fgetwln() function may also fail and set errno for any of the errors specified for the
     routines mbrtowc(3), realloc(3), or read(2).
