This chapter lists the functions in the standard library according to their respective areas of application, describing shared features of the functions and their relationships to one another. This compilation might help you to find the right function for your purposes while programming.
The individual functions are described in detail in Chapter 17, which explains them in alphabetical order, with examples.
We have dealt with this topic in detail in Chapter 13, which contains sections on I/O streams, sequential and random file access , formatted I/O, and error handling. A tabular list of the I/O functions will therefore suffice here. Table 16-1 lists general file access functions declared in the header stdio.h.

Rename a file, delete a file
Create and/or open a file
Close a file
Generate a unique filename

Query the current file access position
Change the current file access position
Write buffer contents to file
