fputws - put a wide-character string on a stream
int fputws(const wchar_t *restrict ws, FILE *restrict stream);
[CX] The functionality described on this reference page is aligned with the ISO C standard. Any conflict between the requirements described here and the ISO C standard is unintentional. This volume of POSIX.1-2008 defers to the ISO C standard.
The fputws() function shall write 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 shall be written.
[CX] The last data modification and last file status change timestamps of the file shall 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() shall return a non-negative number. Otherwise, it shall return -1, set an error indicator for the stream, [CX] and set errno to indicate the error.
Refer to fputwc .
The fputws() function does not append a <newline>.
