#include <stdio.h> int pclose( FILE* stream );

Use the -l c option to qcc to link against this library. This library is usually included automatically.
|This function is in libc.a, but not in libc.so (in order to save space).|
The pclose() function closes the pipe associated with stream, and waits for the subprocess created by popen() to terminate.
The termination status of the command language interpreter, or -1 if an error occurred (errno is set).
- The pclose() function was interrupted by a signal while waiting for the child process to terminate.
- The pclose() function was unable to obtain the termination status of the child process.
