clearerr, feof, ferror, fileno - check and reset stream status
void clearerr(FILE *stream);
int feof(FILE *stream);
int ferror(FILE *stream);
int fileno(FILE *stream);
The function clearerr clears the end-of-file and error indicators for the stream pointed
to by stream.
The function feof tests the end-of-file indicator for the stream pointed to by stream,
returning non-zero if it is set. The end-of-file indicator can only be cleared by the
The function ferror tests the error indicator for the stream pointed to by stream, return-
ing non-zero if it is set. The error indicator can only be reset by the clearerr func-
The function fileno examines the argument stream and returns its integer descriptor.
For non-locking counterparts, see unlocked_stdio(3).
These functions should not fail and do not set the external variable errno. (However, in
case fileno detects that its argument is not a valid stream, it must return -1 and set
errno to EBADF.)
The functions clearerr, feof, and ferror conform to X3.159-1989 (``ANSI C'').
