FCLOSE(3)			   BSD Library Functions Manual 			FCLOSE(3)

NAME
     fclose -- close a stream

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <stdio.h>

     int
     fclose(FILE *stream);

DESCRIPTION
     The fclose() function dissociates the named stream from its underlying file or set of func-
     tions.  If the stream was being used for output, any buffered data is written first, using
     fflush(3).

RETURN VALUES
     Upon successful completion 0 is returned.	Otherwise, EOF is returned and the global vari-
     able errno is set to indicate the error.  In either case no further access to the stream is
     possible.

ERRORS
     [EBADF]		The argument stream is not an open stream.

     The fclose() function may also fail and set errno for any of the errors specified for the
     routines close(2) or fflush(3).

SEE ALSO
     close(2), fflush(3), fopen(3), setbuf(3)

STANDARDS
     The fclose() function conforms to ANSI X3.159-1989 (``ANSI C89'').
