NAME
fwide -- get/set orientation of a stream LIBRARY
Standard C Library (libc, -lc) SYNOPSIS
#include <stdio.h> #include <wchar.h> int fwide(FILE *stream, int mode); DESCRIPTION
The fwide() function determines the orientation of the stream pointed at by stream. If the orientation of stream has already been determined, fwide() leaves it unchanged. Otherwise, fwide() sets the orientation of stream according to mode. If mode is less than zero, stream is set to byte-oriented. If it is greater than zero, stream is set to wide-oriented. Otherwise, mode is zero, and stream is unchanged. RETURN VALUES
fwide() returns a value according to orientation after the call of fwide(); a value less than zero if byte-oriented, a value greater than zero if wide-oriented, and zero if the stream has no orientation. SEE ALSO

The fwide() function conforms to ISO/IEC 9899:1999 (``ISO C99''). BSD

NAME
fwide - Sets stream orientation to byte or wide-character LIBRARY
Standard C Library (libc) SYNOPSIS
#include <stdio.h> #include <wchar.h> int fwide( FILE *stream, int mode); STANDARDS
Interfaces documented on this reference page conform to industry standards as follows: fwide(): XSH5.0 Refer to the standards(5) reference page for more information about industry standards and associated tags. PARAMETERS
Points to a FILE structure specifying an open stream Specifies an integer that determines the orientation of the stream. If the integer is greater than zero, the function attempts to make the stream wide-character oriented. If the integer is less than zero, the function attempts to make the stream byte oriented. If the integer is zero, the function does not attempt to alter the stream orientation. DESCRIPTION
The fwide() function, depending on the value of the mode parameter, sets or queries the orientation of a stream of data specified by a FILE structure. If the stream has no orientation, a positive or negative mode value causes the function to change the stream orientation to wide character or byte, respectively. The function does not change stream orientation when it is already set. When the stream orientation is already set, the application must first call freopen() to reinitialize the stream and then call fwide() to reset the stream orientation. A mode value of zero causes the function to return the current stream orientation without attempting to change it. RETURN VALUES
The fwide() function returns an integer value to indicate the stream orientation after the call. The function returns a value greater than zero if the stream orientation is wide-character, a value less than zero if the stream orientation is byte, and 0 (zero) if the stream has no orientation. On error, the function returns 0 (zero) and sets errno to indicate the condition. ERRORS
The file descriptor associated with stream is invalid. RELATED INFORMATION
