Manual Pages  — SCANF_L

NAME

scanf_l, fscanf_l, sscanf_l, vfscanf_l, vscanf_l, vsscanf_l – input format conversion

CONTENTS

LIBRARY

Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS

#include <stdio.h>
#include <xlocale.h>

int
scanf_l(locale_t loc, const char * restrict format, ...);

int
fscanf_l(FILE * restrict stream, locale_t loc, const char * restrict format, ...);

int
sscanf_l(const char * restrict str, locale_t loc, const char * restrict format, ...);

int
vfscanf_l(FILE * restrict stream, locale_t loc, const char * restrict format, va_list ap);

int
vscanf_l(locale_t loc, const char * restrict format, va_list ap);

int
vsscanf_l(const char * restrict str, locale_t loc, const char * restrict format, va_list ap);

DESCRIPTION

The above functions scan input according to a specified format in the locale loc. They behave in the same way as the versions without the _l suffix, but use the specific locale rather than the global or per-thread locale. See the specific manual pages for more information.

SEE ALSO

scanf(3), xlocale(3)

STANDARDS

These functions do not conform to any specific standard so they should be considered as non-portable local extensions.

HISTORY

These functions first appeared in Darwin and were first implemented in FreeBSD 9.1 .

Our grievance is not just against Unix itself, but against the cult of Unix zealots who defend and nurture it. They take the heat, disease, and pestilence as givens, and, as ancient shamans did, display their wounds, some self-inflicted, as proof of their power and wizardry. We aim, through bluntness and humor, to show them that they pray to a tin god, and that science, not religion, is the path to useful and friendly technology.
