    int ferror(FILE *stream);

the function ferror tests the error indicator for the stream pointed to by stream, returning non-zero if it is set. The error indicator can only be reset by the clearerr function. Returns non-zero if error indicator is set for stream stream.

C Sourcecode Example

 * ferror example code
#include <stdio.h> /* including standard library */
//#include <windows.h> /* uncomment this for Windows */
int main( void )
  FILE *handle;
  handle = fopen("test.txt","r");
  if (handle!=NULL) {    
    printf ("its all fine\n");
    if (ferror(handle)) { printf ("error in writing to file\n");} 
    fclose (handle);
  } else {
    perror ("error opening file for reading\n");
  return 0;

ferror output

if the test.txt does not exist

  output: ./ferror 
  error opening file for reading
  : No such file or directory

if the test.txt exists

  output: ./ferror 
  its all fine
  error in writing to file
