2.12.5.5 getc

Declaration:

int getc(FILE *stream);

Gets the next character (an unsigned char) from the specified stream and advances the position indicator for the stream.

This may be a macro version of fgetc.

On success the character is returned. If the end-of-file is encountered, then EOF is returned and the end-of-file indicator is set. If an error occurs then the error indicator for the stream is set and EOF is returned.
