NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       putwchar - write a wide character to standard output

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       #include <wchar.h>

       wint_t putwchar (wchar_t wc);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

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

RETURN VALUE    [Toc]    [Back]

       The putwchar function returns wc if no error occurred, or WEOF to indicate
 an error.

CONFORMING TO    [Toc]    [Back]

       ISO/ANSI C, UNIX98

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]


NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

       The behaviour of putwchar depends on the LC_CTYPE category of the  current

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