8.11.9.103 FGet Intrinsic (subroutine)

     CALL FGet(C, Status)

C: CHARACTER; scalar; INTENT(OUT).

Status: INTEGER(KIND=1); OPTIONAL; scalar; INTENT(OUT).

Intrinsic groups: unix.

Description:

Reads a single character into C in stream mode from unit 5 (by-passing normal formatted output) using getc(3). Returns in Status 0 on success, −1 on end-of-file, and the error code from ferror(3) otherwise.

Stream I/O should not be mixed with normal record-oriented (formatted or unformatted) I/O on the same unit; the results are unpredictable.
