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

NAME         top

       fputws - write a wide-character string to a FILE stream

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <wchar.h>

       int fputws(const wchar_t *restrict ws, FILE *restrict stream);

DESCRIPTION         top

       The fputws() function is the wide-character equivalent of the
       fputs(3) function.  It writes the wide-character string starting
       at ws, up to but not including the terminating null wide
       character (L'\0'), to stream.

       For a nonlocking counterpart, see unlocked_stdio(3).

RETURN VALUE         top

       The fputws() function returns a nonnegative integer if the
       operation was successful, or -1 to indicate an error.

CONFORMING TO         top

       POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008, C99.

NOTES         top

       The behavior of fputws() depends on the LC_CTYPE category of the
       current locale.

       In the absence of additional information passed to the fopen(3)
       call, it is reasonable to expect that fputws() will actually
       write the multibyte string corresponding to the wide-character
       string ws.
