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.
