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

NAME
       putwchar - write a wide character to standard output

SYNOPSIS
       #include <wchar.h>

       wint_t putwchar(wchar_t wc);

DESCRIPTION
       The  putwchar function is the wide-character equivalent of the putchar function. It writes
       the wide character wc to stdout.  If ferror(stdout) becomes true, it returns  WEOF.  If	a
       wide  character conversion error occurs, it sets errno to EILSEQ and returns WEOF.  Other-
       wise it returns wc.

       For a non-locking counterpart, see unlocked_stdio(3).

RETURN VALUE
       The putwchar function returns wc if no error occurred, or WEOF to indicate an error.

CONFORMING TO
       ISO/ANSI C, UNIX98

NOTES
       The behaviour of putwchar depends on the LC_CTYPE category of the current locale.

       It is reasonable to expect that putwchar will actually write the multibyte sequence corre-
       sponding to the wide character wc.
