[edit] Return value

1) The pointer to the beginning of the get area.

2) The pointer to the current character (get pointer) in the get area.

3) The pointer one past the end of the get area.

[edit] Notes

While the names "gptr" and "egptr" refer to the get area, the name "eback" refers to the end of the putback area: stepping backwards from gptr, characters can be put back until eback.
