Write a wide character to a stdout
#include <wchar.h> wint_t putwchar( wchar_t wc );
- The wide character that you want to write.
Use the -l c option to qcc to link against this library. This library is usually included automatically.
The putwchar() function writes the wide character wc, cast as (wint_t)(wchar_t), to the stdout stream. It's equivalent to:
fputwc( wc, stdout );
The wide character written, cast as (wint_t)(wchar_t) or WEOF if an error occurs ( errno is set).
If wc exceeds the valid wide-character range, the value returned is the wide character written, not wc.
- The O_NONBLOCK flag is set for fp and would have been blocked by this operation.
- The file descriptor for fp isn't valid for writing.
- The file exceeds the maximum file size, the process's file size limit, or the function can't write at or beyond the offset maximum.
- A signal terminated the write operation; no data was transferred.
- A physical I/O error has occurred or all of the following conditions were met:
- The process is in the background.
- TOSTOP is set.
- The process is blocking/ignoring SIGTTOU.
- The process group is orphaned.
- Can't write to pipe or FIFO because it's closed; a SIGPIPE signal is also sent to the thread.
