RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for putw (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 recom- mend 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.
