_set_fmode 

Sets the default file translation mode for file I/O operations.


errno_t _set_fmode( 
   int mode 
);

Parameters

[in] mode

The file translation mode desired: _O_TEXT or _O_BINARY.

Returns zero if successful, an error code on failure. If mode is not _O_TEXT or _O_BINARY or _O_WTEXT, the invalid parameter handler is invoked, as described in Parameter Validation. If execution is allowed to continue, this function sets errno to EINVAL and returns EINVAL.

The function sets the _fmode global variable. This variable specifies the default file translation mode for the file I/O operations _open and _pipe.

_O_TEXT and _O_BINARY are defined in Fcntl.h. EINVAL is defined in Errno.h.
