NAME

       clearerr, feof, ferror, fileno - check and reset stream status

SYNOPSIS

       #include <stdio.h>

       void clearerr(FILE *stream);

       int feof(FILE *stream);

       int ferror(FILE *stream);

       int fileno(FILE *stream);

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       fileno(): _POSIX_C_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION

       The function clearerr() clears the end-of-file and error indicators for
       the stream pointed to by stream.

       The function feof() tests the  end-of-file  indicator  for  the  stream
       pointed  to by stream, returning nonzero if it is set.  The end-of-file
       indicator can only be cleared by the function clearerr().

       The function ferror() tests the error indicator for the stream  pointed
       to  by stream, returning nonzero if it is set.  The error indicator can
       only be reset by the clearerr() function.

       The function fileno() examines the  argument  stream  and  returns  its
       integer descriptor.

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

ERRORS

       These  functions  should  not fail and do not set the external variable
       errno.  (However, in case fileno() detects that its argument is  not  a
       valid stream, it must return -1 and set errno to EBADF.)

CONFORMING TO

       The  functions clearerr(), feof(), and ferror() conform to C89 and C99.
