putc: put a byte on a stream
PROLOGThis manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual. The Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may not be implemented on Linux.
putc - put a byte on a stream
int putc(int c, FILE *stream);
The putc() function shall be equivalent to fputc(), except that if it is implemented as a macro it may evaluate stream more than once, so the argument should never be an expression with side effects.
Refer to fputc().
The following sections are informative.
Since it may be implemented as a macro, putc() may treat a stream argument with side effects incorrectly. In particular, putc(c,*f++) does not necessarily work correctly. Therefore, use of this function is not recommended in such situations; fputc() should be used instead.
