       fpurge, __fpurge - purge a stream

       /* unsupported */
       #include <stdio.h>

       int fpurge(FILE *stream);

       /* supported */
       #include <stdio.h>
       #include <stdio_ext.h>

       void  __fpurge(FILE *stream);

       The function fpurge() clears the buffers of the given stream.  For out‐
       put streams this discards any unwritten output.	For input streams this
       discards any input read from the underlying object but not yet obtained
       via getc(3); this includes any text pushed  back	 via  ungetc(3).   See
       also fflush(3).

       The  function __fpurge() does precisely the same, but without returning
       a value.

       Upon successful completion fpurge() returns 0.  On error, it returns -1
       and sets errno appropriately.

       EBADF  stream is not an open stream.

       These  functions	 are  nonstandard  and	not  portable.	 The  function
       fpurge() was introduced in 4.4BSD and is	 not  available	 under	Linux.
       The  function  __fpurge()  was introduced in Solaris, and is present in
       glibc 2.1.95 and later.

       Usually it is a mistake to want to discard input buffers.
