FGETWS(3P)		   POSIX Programmer's Manual		    FGETWS(3P)

       This  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.

       fgetws — get a wide-character string from a stream

       #include <stdio.h>
       #include <wchar.h>

       wchar_t *fgetws(wchar_t *restrict ws, int n,
	   FILE *restrict stream);

       The functionality described on this reference page is aligned with  the
       ISO C  standard.	 Any  conflict between the requirements described here
       and the ISO C standard is unintentional. This  volume  of  POSIX.1‐2008
       defers to the ISO C standard.

       The  fgetws()  function	shall read characters from the stream, convert
       these to the corresponding wide-character  codes,  place	 them  in  the
       wchar_t	array  pointed	to  by ws, until n−1 characters are read, or a
       <newline> is read, converted, and transferred to ws, or an  end-of-file
       condition  is encountered. The wide-character string, ws, shall then be
       terminated with a null wide-character code.

       If an error occurs, the resulting value of the file position  indicator
       for the stream is unspecified.

       The  fgetws()  function	may mark the last data access timestamp of the
       file associated with stream for update. The last data access  timestamp
       shall  be  marked  for  update  by  the	first  successful execution of
       fgetwc(), fgetws(), fwscanf(), getwc(),	getwchar(),  vfwscanf(),  vws‐
       canf(),	or  wscanf()  using stream that returns data not supplied by a
       prior call to ungetwc().

       Upon successful completion, fgetws() shall return ws.  If  the  end-of-
       file  indicator	for  the stream is set, or if the stream is at end-of-
       file, the end-of-file  indicator	 for  the  stream  shall  be  set  and
       fgetws() shall return a null pointer. If a read error occurs, the error
       indicator for the stream shall be set, fgetws()	shall  return  a  null
       pointer, and shall set errno to indicate the error.

       Refer to fgetwc().
