Once a file has been opened for writing a string can be written to the
file using the
fputs function. The following example shows
how to write the string ‘Free Software is needed for Free Science’
to the file ‘free.txt’.
filename = "free.txt"; fid = fopen (filename, "w"); fputs (fid, "Free Software is needed for Free Science"); fclose (fid);
Write the string string to the file with file descriptor fid.
The string is written to the file with no additional formatting. Use
fdisp instead to automatically append a newline character appropriate
for the local machine.
Return a non-negative number on success or EOF on error.
See also: fdisp, fprintf, fwrite, fopen.
A function much similar to
fputs is available for writing data
to the screen. The
puts function works just like
except it doesn’t take a file pointer as its input.
Write a string to the standard output with no formatting.
The string is written verbatim to the standard output. Use
automatically append a newline character appropriate for the local machine.
Return a non-negative number on success and EOF on error.
