vfwprintf (3C)

Name

vfwprintf, vswprintf, vwprintf - wide-character formatted output of a stdarg argument list

Synopsis

#include <stdarg.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <wchar.h>

int vfwprintf(FILE *restrict stream, const wchar_t *restrict format,
     va_list arg);
int vswprintf(wchar_t *restrict s, size_t n,
     const wchar_t *restrict format, va_list arg);
int vwprintf(const wchar_t *restrict format, va_list arg);

Description

The vwprintf(), vfwprintf(), and vswprintf() functions are the same as wprintf(), fwprintf(), and swprintf() respectively, except that instead of being called with a variable number of arguments, they are called with an argument list as defined by <stdarg.h>.

These functions do not invoke the va_end() macro. However, as these functions do invoke the va_arg() macro, the value of ap after the return is indeterminate.

Return Values

Refer to fwprintf(3C).

Errors

Refer to fwprintf(3C).

Usage

Applications using these functions should call va_end(ap) afterwards to clean up.
