Closes a stream (fclose) or closes all open streams (_fcloseall).
int fclose( FILE *stream ); int _fcloseall( void );
- Pointer to FILE structure.
fclose returns 0 if the stream is successfully closed. _fcloseall returns the total number of streams closed. Both functions return EOF to indicate an error.
The fclose function closes stream. _fcloseall closes all open streams except stdin, stdout, stderr (and, in MS-DOS, _stdaux and _stdprn). It also closes and deletes any temporary files created by tmpfile. In both functions, all buffers associated with the stream are flushed prior to closing. System-allocated buffers are released when the stream is closed. Buffers assigned by the user with setbuf and setvbuf are not automatically released.
