PUTS(3)			   Linux Programmer's Manual		       PUTS(3)

NAME
       fputc, fputs, putc, putchar, puts - output of characters	and strings

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<stdio.h>

       int fputc(int c,	FILE *stream);
       int fputs(const char *s,	FILE *stream);
       int putc(int c, FILE *stream);
       int putchar(int c);
       int puts(const char *s);

DESCRIPTION
       fputc() writes the character c, cast to an unsigned char, to stream.

       fputs() writes the string s to stream, without its trailing '\0'.

       putc()  is equivalent to	fputc()	except that it may be implemented as a
       macro which evaluates stream more than once.

       putchar(c); is equivalent to putc(c,stdout).

       puts() writes the string	s and a	trailing newline to stdout.

       Calls to	the functions described	here can be mixed with each other  and
       with  calls  to	other  output functions	from the stdio library for the
       same output stream.

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

RETURN VALUE
       fputc(),	putc() and  putchar()  return  the  character  written	as  an
       unsigned	char cast to an	int or EOF on error.

       puts()  and  fputs() return a non-negative number on success, or	EOF on
       error.

CONFORMING TO
       ANSI - C, POSIX.1

BUGS
       It is not advisable to mix calls	to output  functions  from  the	 stdio
       library with low	- level	calls to write() for the file descriptor asso-
       ciated with the same output stream; the results will be	undefined  and
       very probably not what you want.
