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 <stdio.h>
       #include <stdio_ext.h>

       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 flockfile(3) in case there  is  more  than  one
              thread), and the stdio routines will not do locking until the state is reset to FSETLOCKING_INTERNAL.

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

       The _flushlbf() function flushes all line-buffered streams.  (Presumably 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.
