FILENO(3P)		   POSIX Programmer's Manual		    FILENO(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.

       fileno — map a stream pointer to a file descriptor

       #include <stdio.h>

       int fileno(FILE *stream);

       The fileno() function shall return the integer file descriptor  associ‐
       ated with the stream pointed to by stream.

       Upon  successful completion, fileno() shall return the integer value of
       the file descriptor associated with stream.  Otherwise,	the  value  −1
       shall be returned and errno set to indicate the error.

       The fileno() function may fail if:

       EBADF  The  stream argument is not a valid stream, or the stream is not
	      associated with a file.

       The following sections are informative.



       Without some specification of which  file  descriptors  are  associated
       with  these  streams, it is impossible for an application to set up the
       streams for another application it starts with  fork()  and  exec.   In
       particular, it would not be possible to write a portable version of the
       sh command interpreter (although there may be  other  constraints  that
       would prevent that portability).
