_getc_nolock, _getwc_nolock 

Reads a character from a stream.


int _getc_nolock( 
   FILE *stream 
);
wint_t _getwc_nolock( 
   FILE *stream 
);

Parameters

stream

Input stream.

These functions are identical to getc and getwc except that they do not lock the calling thread. They might be faster because they do not incur the overhead of locking out other threads. Use these functions only in thread-safe contexts such as single-threaded applications or where the calling scope already handles thread isolation.
