al_fget_ustr(1) Allegro 5 API


#include <allegro5/allegro.h>


Read a string of bytes terminated with a newline or end-of-file. The line terminator(s), if any, are included in the returned string.

On success returns a pointer to a new ALLEGRO_USTR structure. This must be freed eventually with al_ustr_free(3alleg5). Returns NULL if an error occurred or if the end of file was reached without reading any bytes.

See al_fopen(3alleg5) about translations of end-of-line characters.
