STDIO_EXT(3)               Linux Programmer's Manual              STDIO_EXT(3)



NAME
       __fbufsize,  __flbf,  __fpending,  __fpurge,  __freadable,  __freading,
       __fsetlocking, __fwritable, __fwriting, _flushlbf - interfaces to stdio
       FILE structure

SYNOPSIS
       #include <&lt;stdio.h>&gt;
       #include <&lt;stdio_ext.h>&gt;

       size_t __fbufsize(FILE *stream);
       size_t __fpending(FILE *stream);
       int __flbf(FILE *stream);
       int __freadable(FILE *stream);
       int __fwritable(FILE *stream);
       int __freading(FILE *stream);
       int __fwriting(FILE *stream);
       int __fsetlocking(FILE *stream, int type);
       void _flushlbf(void);
       void __fpurge(FILE *stream);

DESCRIPTION
       Solaris  introduced  routines to allow portable access to the internals
       of the FILE structure, and glibc also implemented these.

       The __fbufsize() function returns the size of the buffer currently used
       by the given stream.

       The  __fpending()  function  returns  the number of bytes in the output
       buffer.  For wide-oriented streams the unit is wide  characters.   This
       function is undefined on buffers in reading mode, or opened read-only.

       The  __flbf()  function returns a non-zero value if the stream is line-
       buffered, and zero otherwise.

       The __freadable() function returns  a  non-zero  value  if  the  stream
       allows reading, and zero otherwise.

       The  __fwritable()  function  returns  a  non-zero  value if the stream
       allows writing, and zero otherwise.

       The __freading() function returns a non-zero value  if  the  stream  is
       read-only, or if the last operation on the stream was a read operation,
       and zero otherwise.

       The __fwriting() function returns a non-zero value  if  the  stream  is
       write-only (or append-only), or if the last operation on the stream was
       a write operation, and zero otherwise.

       The __fsetlocking() function can be used to select the desired type  of
       locking on the stream.  It returns the current type.  The type argument
       can take the following three values:

       FSETLOCKING_INTERNAL
              Perform implicit locking around every  operation  on  the  given
              stream (except for the *_unlocked ones).  This is the default.

       FSETLOCKING_BYCALLER
              The  caller will take care of the locking (possibly using flock-
              file(3) in case there is more than one thread),  and  the  stdio
              routines  will  not do locking until the state is reset to FSET-
              LOCKING_INTERNAL.

       FSETLOCKING_QUERY
              Don't change the type of locking.  (Only return it.)

       The _flushlbf() function flushes all line-buffered  streams.   (Presum-
       ably  so  that  output  to a terminal is forced out, say before reading
       keyboard input.)

       The __fpurge() function discards the contents of the stream's buffer.
