NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for fputc (netbsd section 3)

PUTC(3) 			   BSD Library Functions Manual 			  PUTC(3)

NAME
     fputc, putc, putchar, putc_unlocked, putchar_unlocked, putw -- output a character or word to
     a stream

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <stdio.h>

     int
     fputc(int c, FILE *stream);

     int
     putc(int c, FILE *stream);

     int
     putchar(int c);

     int
     putc_unlocked(int c, FILE *stream);

     int
     putchar_unlocked(int c);

     int
     putw(int w, FILE *stream);

DESCRIPTION
     The fputc() function writes the character c (converted to an ``unsigned char'') to the out-
     put stream pointed to by stream.

     putc() acts essentially identically to fputc(), but is a macro that expands in-line.  It may
     evaluate stream more than once, so arguments given to putc() should not be expressions with
     potential side effects.

     putchar() is identical to putc() with an output stream of stdout.

     The putc_unlocked() and putchar_unlocked() functions provide functionality identical to that
     of putc() and putchar(), respectively, but do not perform implicit locking of the streams
     they operate on.  In multi-threaded programs they may be used only within a scope in which
     the stream has been successfully locked by the calling thread using either flockfile(3) or
     ftrylockfile(3), and may later be released using funlockfile(3).

     The putw() function writes the specified int to the named output stream.

RETURN VALUES
     The functions, fputc(), putc() and putchar() return the character written.  If an error
     occurs, the value EOF is returned.  The putw() function returns 0 on success; EOF is
     returned if a write error occurs, or if an attempt is made to write a read-only stream.

SEE ALSO
     ferror(3), fopen(3), getc(3), stdio(3)

STANDARDS
     The functions fputc(), putc(), and putchar(), conform to ANSI X3.159-1989 (``ANSI C89'').
     The functions putc_unlocked() and putchar_unlocked() conform to ISO/IEC 9945-1:1996
     (``POSIX.1'').

HISTORY
     The functions putc(), putchar(), and putw() first appeared in Version 6 AT&T UNIX.  The
     function fputc() appeared in Version 7 AT&T UNIX.

BUGS
     The size and byte order of an int varies from one machine to another, and putw() is not rec-
     ommended for portable applications.
