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



NAME
       fputc, fputs, putc, putchar, puts - output of characters and strings

SYNOPSIS
       #include <stdio.h>

       int fputc(int c, FILE *stream);
       int fputs(const char *s, FILE *stream);
       int putc(int c, FILE *stream);
       int putchar(int c);
       int puts(const char *s);

DESCRIPTION
       fputc() writes the character c, cast to an unsigned char, to stream.

       fputs() writes the string s to stream, without its trailing '\0'.

       putc() is equivalent to fputc() except that it may be implemented as a
       macro which evaluates stream more than once.

       putchar(c); is equivalent to putc(c,stdout).

       puts() writes the string s and a trailing newline to stdout.

       Calls to the functions described here can be mixed with each other and
       with calls to other output functions from the stdio library for the same
       output stream.

RETURN VALUES
       fputc(), putc() and putchar() return the character written as an unsigned
       char cast to an int or EOF on error.

       puts() and fputs() return a non - negative number on success, or EOF on
       error.

CONFORMING TO
       ANSI - C, POSIX.1

BUGS
       It is not advisable to mix calls to output functions from the stdio
       library with low - level calls to write() for the file descriptor
       associated with the same output stream; the results will be undefined and
       very probably not what you want.
