(deprecated)

Reads stdin into given character string until a newline character is found or end-of-file occurs.

Contents

Parameters

str - character string to be written

Return value

str on success, NULL otherwise

Notes

The bounds checking is not performed, therefore this function is extremely vulnerable to buffer-overflow attacks. Use Template:rlpt instead.
