NAME

clearerr, feof, ferror, fileno - check and reset stream status  

SYNOPSIS

#include <stdio.h>

void clearerr(FILE *stream);

int feof(FILE *stream);

int ferror(FILE *stream);

int fileno(FILE *stream);

Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

fileno(): _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 1 || _XOPEN_SOURCE || _POSIX_SOURCE  

DESCRIPTION

The function clearerr() clears the end-of-file and error indicators for the stream pointed to by stream.

The function feof() tests the end-of-file indicator for the stream pointed to by stream, returning non-zero if it is set. The end-of-file indicator can only be cleared by the function clearerr().

The function ferror() tests the error indicator for the stream pointed to by stream, returning non-zero if it is set. The error indicator can only be reset by the clearerr() function.

The function fileno() examines the argument stream and returns its integer descriptor.

For non-locking counterparts, see unlocked_stdio(3).  

ERRORS

These functions should not fail and do not set the external variable errno. (However, in case fileno() detects that its argument is not a valid stream, it must return -1 and set errno to EBADF.)  

CONFORMING TO

The functions clearerr(), feof(), and ferror() conform to C89 and C99.
