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.  Oth-
     erwise, 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
     ferror(3), fgetc(3), fgetwc(3), fopen(3), fputc(3), fputwc(3), freopen(3), stdio(3)

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