_cputs, _cputws

Puts a string to the console.

Important note Important

This API cannot be used in applications that execute in the Windows Runtime. For more information, see CRT functions not supported with /ZW.

int _cputs(  
const char *str  
); 
int _cputws( 
const wchar_t *str  
);
str

Output string.

If successful, _cputs returns 0. If the function fails, it returns a nonzero value.

The _cputs function writes the null-terminated string that's pointed to by str directly to the console. A carriage return-line feed (CR-LF) combination is not automatically appended to the string.

This function validates its parameter. If str is NULL, the invalid parameter handler is invoked, as described in Parameter Validation. If execution is allowed to continue, errno is set to EINVAL and -1 is returned.
