POSIX 1003.1 - man page for stdio.h (posix section 0p)

<stdio.h>(P)			    POSIX Programmer's Manual			     <stdio.h>(P)

NAME
       stdio.h - standard buffered input/output

SYNOPSIS
       #include <stdio.h>

DESCRIPTION
       Some  of  the  functionality  described on this reference page extends the ISO C standard.
       Applications shall define the appropriate feature test macro (see  the  System  Interfaces
       volume  of  IEEE Std 1003.1-2001,  Section 2.2, The Compilation Environment) to enable the
       visibility of these symbols in this header.

       The <stdio.h> header shall define  the  following  macros  as  positive	integer  constant
       expressions:

       BUFSIZ Size of <stdio.h> buffers.

       _IOFBF Input/output fully buffered.

       _IOLBF Input/output line buffered.

       _IONBF Input/output unbuffered.

       L_ctermid
	      Maximum size of character array to hold ctermid() output.

       L_tmpnam
	      Maximum size of character array to hold tmpnam() output.

       SEEK_CUR
	      Seek relative to current position.

       SEEK_END
	      Seek relative to end-of-file.

       SEEK_SET
	      Seek relative to start-of-file.

       The  following  macros  shall  be  defined  as positive integer constant expressions which
       denote implementation limits:

       {FILENAME_MAX}
	      Maximum size in bytes of the longest filename string that the implementation  guar-
	      antees can be opened.

       {FOPEN_MAX}
	      Number  of  streams which the implementation guarantees can be open simultaneously.
	      The value is at least eight.

       {TMP_MAX}
	      Minimum number of unique filenames generated by tmpnam(). Maximum number	of  times
	      an  application  can call tmpnam() reliably. The value of {TMP_MAX} is at least 25.
	       On XSI-conformant systems, the value of {TMP_MAX} is at least 10000.

       The following macro name shall be defined as a negative integer constant expression:

       EOF    End-of-file return value.

       The following macro name shall be defined as a null pointer constant:

       NULL   Null pointer.

       The following macro name shall be defined as a string constant:

       P_tmpdir
	      Default directory prefix for tempnam().

       The following shall be defined as expressions of type "pointer to FILE" that point to  the
       FILE objects associated, respectively, with the standard error, input, and output streams:

       stderr Standard error output stream.

       stdin  Standard input stream.

       stdout Standard output stream.

       The following data types shall be defined through typedef:

       FILE   A structure containing information about a file.

       fpos_t A  non-array type containing all information needed to specify uniquely every posi-
	      tion within a file.

       va_list
	      As described in <stdarg.h> .

       size_t As described in <stddef.h> .

       The following shall be declared as functions and may also be defined as	macros.  Function
       prototypes shall be provided.
