GETC(3F)                                                              GETC(3F)



NAME
       getc, fgetc - get a character from a logical unit

SYNOPSIS
       integer function getc (char)
       character char

       integer function fgetc (lunit, char)
       character char

DESCRIPTION
       These  routines return the next character from a file associated with a
       fortran logical unit, bypassing normal fortran I/O.   Getc  reads  from
       logical unit 5, normally connected to the control terminal input.

       The  value  of each function is a system status code. Zero indicates no
       error occured on the read; -1 indicates end of file  was  detected.   A
       positive  value  will  be either a UNIX system error code or an f77 I/O
       error code. See perror(3F).

FILES
       /usr/lib/libU77.a
