fcloseall: close all open streams
fcloseall - close all open streams
#define _GNU_SOURCE /* See feature_test_macros(7) */ #include <stdio.h> int fcloseall(void);
DESCRIPTIONThe fcloseall() function closes all of the calling process's open streams. Buffered output for each stream is written before it is closed (as for fflush(3)); buffered input is discarded.
The standard streams, stdin, stdout, and stderr are also closed.
RETURN VALUEThis function returns 0 if all files were successfully closed; on error, EOF is returned.
ATTRIBUTESFor an explanation of the terms used in this section, see attributes(7).
|fcloseall()||Thread safety||MT-Unsafe race:streams|
