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

NAME
       getw, putw - input and output of words (ints)

SYNOPSIS
       #include <stdio.h>

       int getw(FILE *stream);
       int putw(int w, FILE *stream);

DESCRIPTION
       getw reads a word (that is, an int) from stream. It's pro-
       vided for compatibility with SVID.  We recommend  you  use
       fread(3) instead.

       putw writes the word w (that is, an int) to stream.  It is
       provided for compatibility with SVID, but we recommend you
       use fwrite(3) instead.

RETURN VALUES
       Normally, getw returns the word read, and putw returns the
       word written.  On error, they return EOF.

BUGS
       The value returned on error  is  also  a  legitimate  data
       value.   ferror(3)  can be used to distinguish between the
       two cases.

CONFORMING TO
