Notes on I/O Libraries
The stdio library's main benefit is it is universal, and it is taught
in every introductory C programming course. Drawbacks: implementations
may not be too fast, not suitable for networked IO except in limited
circumstances (doesn't handle EWOULDBLOCK properly).
Some stdio calls:
- printf(): A special case of fprintf, this is the function every C
programmer is familiar with.
