DESCRIPTION         top

       Each of these functions has the same behavior as its counterpart
       without the "_unlocked" suffix, except that they do not use locking
       (they do not set locks themselves, and do not test for the presence
       of locks set by others) and hence are thread-unsafe.  See
       flockfile(3).

CONFORMING TO         top

       The four functions getc_unlocked(), getchar_unlocked(),
       putc_unlocked(), putchar_unlocked() are in POSIX.1-2001 and
       POSIX.1-2008.

       The nonstandard *_unlocked() variants occur on a few UNIX systems,
       and are available in recent glibc.  They should probably not be used.
