NAME

putwchar - write a wide character to standard output  

SYNOPSIS

#include <wchar.h>wint_t putwchar(wchar_t wc);
 

DESCRIPTION

The putwchar() function is the wide-character equivalent of the putchar(3) function. It writes the wide character wcto stdout. If ferror(stdout)becomes true, it returns WEOF. If a wide character conversion error occurs, it sets errnoto EILSEQand returns WEOF. Otherwise, it returns wc.

For a nonlocking counterpart, see unlocked_stdio(3).  

RETURN VALUE

The putwchar() function returns wcif no error occurred, or WEOFto indicate an error.

CONFORMING TO

POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008, C99.  

NOTES

The behavior of putwchar() depends on the LC_CTYPEcategory of the current locale.

It is reasonable to expect that putwchar() will actually write the multibyte sequence corresponding to the wide character wc.
