PROLOG
       This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual.  The Linux implementation of this interface may dif-

NAME
       getwchar - get a wide character from a stdin stream

SYNOPSIS
       #include <wchar.h>

       wint_t getwchar(void);


DESCRIPTION
       The getwchar() function shall be equivalent to getwc(stdin).

RETURN VALUE

ERRORS

       The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES
       None.

APPLICATION USAGE
       If  the wint_t value returned by getwchar() is stored into a variable of type wchar_t and then compared against
       the wint_t macro WEOF, the result may be incorrect.  Only the wint_t type is guaranteed to be able to represent
       any wide character and WEOF.

RATIONALE
