10.5.2.38 FGetC Intrinsic (function)

     FGetC(Unit, C)

FGetC: INTEGER(KIND=1) function.

Unit: INTEGER; scalar; INTENT(IN).

C: CHARACTER; scalar; INTENT(OUT).

Intrinsic groups: badu77.

Description:

Reads a single character into C in stream mode from unit Unit (by-passing normal formatted output) using getc(3). Returns 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.
