rewind(3C)						   Standard C Library Functions 						rewind(3C)

NAME
rewind - reset file position indicator in a stream SYNOPSIS
#include <stdio.h> void rewind(FILE *stream); DESCRIPTION
The call: rewind(stream) is equivalent to: (void) fseek(stream, 0L, SEEK_SET) except that rewind() also clears the error indicator. RETURN VALUES
The rewind() function returns no value. ERRORS
Refer to fseek(3C) with the exception of EINVAL which does not apply. USAGE
Because rewind() does not return a value, an application wishing to detect errors should clear errno, then call rewind(), and if errno is non-zero, assume an error has occurred. ATTRIBUTES
See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes: +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ | ATTRIBUTE TYPE | ATTRIBUTE VALUE | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |Interface Stability |Standard | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |MT-Level |MT-Safe | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ SEE ALSO
