PUTWC(3)                 BSD Library Functions Manual                 PUTWC(3)

     fputwc, putwc, putwchar -- output a wide character to a stream

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

     #include <stdio.h>
     #include <wchar.h>

     fputwc(wchar_t wc, FILE *stream);

     putwc(wchar_t wc, FILE *stream);

     putwchar(wchar_t wc);

     The fputwc() function writes the wide character wc to the output stream pointed to by stream.

     The putwc() function acts essentially identically to fputwc().

     The putwchar() function is identical to putwc() with an output stream of stdout.

     Extended locale versions of these functions are documented in putwc_l(3).  See xlocale(3) for more

     The fputwc(), putwc(), and putwchar() functions return the wide character written.  If an error occurs,
     the value WEOF is returned.

     ferror(3), fopen(3), getwc(3), putc(3), putwc_l(3), stdio(3)

     The fputwc(), putwc(), and putwchar() functions conform to ISO/IEC 9899:1999 (``ISO C99'').
