Summary 0001156: Should fflush (NULL) flush streams not backed by files?
Description The description of fflush was not updated when open_memstream was added. This means that currently, fflush (NULL) is also required to perform an fflush operation on such streams. I think fflush (NULL) is predominantly useful for file-based streams (maybe before a call to fork), and the global bookkeeping required for flushing in-memory streams is unecessary.
Desired Action Clarify that fflush (NULL) only affects streams associated with an open file. (The term “stream associated with an open file” is already used in the description of setvbuf.)
