Defined in header
int fputs( const char *str, FILE *stream );
int fputs( const char *restrict str, FILE *restrict stream );
Writes every character from the null-terminated string
str to the output stream
stream, as if by repeatedly executing fputc.
The terminating null character from
str is not written.
|str||-||null-terminated character string to be written|
On success, returns a non-negative value
The related function puts appends a newline character to the output, while
fputs writes the string unmodified.
Different implementations return different non-negative numbers: some return the last character written, some return the number of characters written (or INT_MAX if the string was longer than that), some simply return a non-negative constant such as zero.
