NAME
       fwide - set and determine the orientation of a FILE stream

SYNOPSIS
       #include <wchar.h>

       int fwide(FILE *stream, int mode);

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

       fwide():
	   _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 500 || _ISOC99_SOURCE ||
	   _ISOC95_SOURCE /* Since glibc 2.12 */ ||
	   _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
	   or cc -std=c99

DESCRIPTION
       When mode is zero, the fwide() function determines the current orienta‐
       tion of stream.	It returns a positive value if stream is  wide-charac‐
       ter  oriented, that is, if wide-character I/O is permitted but char I/O
       is disallowed.  It returns a negative value if stream is byte oriented,
       i.e.,  if  char	I/O is permitted but wide-character I/O is disallowed.
       It returns zero if stream has no orientation yet; in this case the next
       I/O operation might change the orientation (to byte oriented if it is a
       char I/O operation, or to wide-character oriented if it is a wide-char‐
       acter I/O operation).

       Once  a	stream	has  an orientation, it cannot be changed and persists
       until the stream is closed.

       When mode is nonzero,  the  fwide()  function  first  attempts  to  set
       stream's	 orientation  (to  wide-character  oriented if mode is greater
       than 0, or to byte oriented if mode is less than 0).  It then returns a
       value denoting the current orientation, as above.

RETURN VALUE
       The  fwide()  function returns the stream's orientation, after possibly
       changing it.  A positive return value means wide-character oriented.  A
       negative	 return	 value	means  byte  oriented.	A return value of zero
       means undecided.

CONFORMING TO
       C99, POSIX.1-2001.

NOTES
       Wide-character output to	 a  byte  oriented  stream  can	 be  performed
       through the fprintf(3) function with the %lc and %ls directives.

       Char  oriented  output  to a wide-character oriented stream can be per‐
       formed through the fwprintf(3) function with the %c and %s directives.
