SYNOPSIS


.In stdio.h int ungetc int c FILE *stream

DESCRIPTION

The ungetc function pushes the character c (converted to an unsigned char) back onto the input stream pointed to by stream. The pushed-back characters will be returned by subsequent reads on the stream (in reverse order). A successful intervening call, using the same stream, to one of the file positioning functions ( fseek 3, fsetpos(3), or rewind(3)) will discard the pushed back characters.

One character of push-back is guaranteed, but as long as there is sufficient memory, an effectively infinite amount of pushback is allowed.

If a character is successfully pushed-back, the end-of-file indicator for the stream is cleared. The file-position indicator is decremented by each successful call to ungetc; if its value was 0 before a call, its value is unspecified after the call.

RETURN VALUES

The ungetc function returns the character pushed-back after the conversion, or EOF if the operation fails. If the value of the argument c character equals EOF, the operation will fail and the stream will remain unchanged.

SEE ALSO

fseek(3), getc(3), setvbuf(3), ungetwc(3)

STANDARDS

The ungetc function conforms to -isoC.
