setbuf: assign buffering to 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.
setbuf - assign buffering to a stream
Except that it returns no value, the function call:
shall be equivalent to:
setvbuf(stream, buf, _IOFBF, BUFSIZ)
if buf is not a null pointer, or to:
setvbuf(stream, buf, _IONBF, BUFSIZ)
No errors are defined.
A common source of error is allocating buffer space as an "automatic" variable in a code block, and then failing to close the stream in the same block.
