Writes a character 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 _putch( 
int c  
); 
wint_t _putwch( 
   wchar_t c 
);

c

Character to be output.

Returns c if successful. If _putch fails, it returns EOF; if _putwch fails, it returns WEOF.

These functions write the character c directly, without buffering, to the console. In Windows NT, _putwch writes Unicode characters using the current console locale setting.

The versions with the _nolock suffix are identical except that they are not protected from interference by other threads. For more information, see _putch_nolock, _putwch_nolock.
