fputws - put a wide-character string on a stream


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

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


The fputws() function writes a character string corresponding to the (null-terminated) wide-character string pointed to by ws to the stream pointed to by stream. No character corresponding to the terminating null wide-character code is written.

The st_ctime and st_mtime fields of the file will be marked for update between the successful execution of fputws() and the next successful completion of a call to fflush() or fclose() on the same stream or a call to exit() or abort().


Upon successful completion, fputws() returns a non-negative number. Otherwise it returns -1, sets an error indicator for the stream and errno is set to indicate the error.


Refer to fputwc().




The fputws() function does not append a newline character.




fopen(), <stdio.h>, <wchar.h>.
