Re: Re: Re: fgets() fails to read after fread()
Thanks for the inputs.
I have one doubt here, Is this check for sticky EOF in BSD system is according
to the specification ? if Yes, then why this check is not for SysV

Actually, according to ANSI C:
188.8.131.52 The fread function
The file position indicator for the stream (if
defined) is advanced by the number of characters successfully read.
If an error occurs, the resulting value of the file position indicator
for the stream is indeterminate.
=> So it seems that, if the initial fread() is incomplete (likely to be
your case for EOF), the position indicator is indeterminate. If you want to
be strictly portable, you would rather have to use clearerr() or fsetpos()
before attempting the fgets(), or check that the value returned by fread()
does match the one you passed to it as parameter (and adapt accordingly if
it is not equal).
Your call I guess :)
