_POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 1 || _XOPEN_SOURCE || _POSIX_SOURCE || _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE

clearerr_unlocked(), feof_unlocked(), ferror_unlocked(), fileno_unlocked(), fflush_unlocked(), fgetc_unlocked(), fputc_unlocked(), fread_unlocked(), fwrite_unlocked():

_BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE

fgets_unlocked(), fputs_unlocked(), getwc_unlocked(), getwchar_unlocked(), fgetwc_unlocked(), fputwc_unlocked(), putwchar_unlocked(), fgetws_unlocked(), fputws_unlocked():

_GNU_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION

Each of these functions has the same behavior as its counterpart without the "_unlocked" suffix, except that they do not use locking (they do not set locks themselves, and do not test for the presence of locks set by others) and hence are thread-unsafe. See flockfile(3).

CONFORMING TO

The four functions getc_unlocked(), getchar_unlocked(), putc_unlocked(), putchar_unlocked() are in POSIX.1-2001.

The nonstandard *_unlocked() variants occur on a few UNIX systems, and are available in recent glibc. They should probably not be used.
