RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for getw (redhat section 3)

GETW(3) 			    Linux Programmer's Manual				  GETW(3)

NAME
       getw, putw - input and output of words (ints)

SYNOPSIS
       #include <stdio.h>

       int getw(FILE *stream);
       int putw(int w, FILE *stream);

DESCRIPTION
       getw  reads  a  word  (that  is, an int) from stream. It's provided for compatibility with
       SVID.  We recommend you use fread(3) instead.

       putw writes the word w (that is, an int) to stream.  It is provided for compatibility with
       SVID, 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.

BUGS
       The  value  returned  on  error is also a legitimate data value.  ferror(3) can be used to
       distinguish between the two cases.

CONFORMING TO
       SVID
