puts()

Write a string to stdout

Synopsis:

#include <stdio.h>

int puts( const char *buf );

Arguments:

buf
A pointer to the zero-terminated string that you want to write.

Library:

libc

Use the -l c option to qcc to link against this library. This library is usually included automatically.

Description:

The puts() function writes the character string pointed to by buf to the stdout stream, and appends a newline character to the output. The terminating NUL character of buf isn't written.

Returns:

A nonnegative value for success, or EOF if an error occurs ( errno is set).

Examples:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

int main( void )
{
    FILE *fp;
    char buffer[80];

    fp = freopen( "file", "r", stdin );
    while( gets( buffer ) != NULL ) {
        puts( buffer );
    }
    fclose( fp );
    
    return EXIT_SUCCESS;
}
