NAME
getw, putw - input and output of words (ints) SYNOPSIS
#include <stdio.h> int getw(FILE *stream); int putw(int w, FILE *stream); Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)): getw(), putw(): Since glibc 2.3.3: _XOPEN_SOURCE && ! (_POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L) || /* Glibc since 2.19: */ _DEFAULT_SOURCE || /* Glibc versions <= 2.19: */ _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE Before glibc 2.3.3: _SVID_SOURCE || _BSD_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE DESCRIPTION
getw() reads a word (that is, an int) from stream. It's provided for compatibility with SVr4. We recommend you use fread(3) instead. putw() writes the word w (that is, an int) to stream. It is provided for compatibility with SVr4, but we recommend you use fwrite(3) instead. RETURN VALUE
Normally, getw() returns the word read, and putw() returns 0. On error, they return EOF. ATTRIBUTES

SVr4, SUSv2. Not present in POSIX.1. BUGS
The value returned on error is also a legitimate data value. ferror(3) can be used to distinguish between the two cases. SEE ALSO
