Final Accepted Text
Summary 0001249: fsetpos() "state indicator" text does not match C99
Description The description of fsetpos() says it "shall set the file position and
state indicators for the stream". It is not clear what "state indicator"
is intended to mean, but this text isn't shaded CX so presumably the
intention is to require the same thing as C99, which is that fsetpos() sets
"the mbstate_t object (if any)" for the stream.

Note that "indicators" is plural because it is referring to the file
position indicator and the state indicator, not because there is more
than one state indicator. (I.e. it is not referring to the eof and
error indicators, which a reader might otherwise assume based on the
plural.)

There are also some minor differences between the paragraph at line
32637 and the equivalent C99 paragraph.
Desired Action On page 960 line 32633 section fsetpos(), change:
The fsetpos() function shall set the file position and state indicators for the stream ...
to:
The fsetpos() function shall set the mbstate_t object (if any) and file position indicator for the stream ...

On page 960 line 32637 section fsetpos(), change:
A successful call to the fsetpos() function shall clear the end-of-file indicator for the stream and undo any effects of ungetc() on the same stream. After an fsetpos() call, the next operation on an update stream may be either input or output.
to:
A successful call to the fsetpos() function shall undo any effects of the ungetc() function on the stream, clear the end-of-file indicator for the stream, and then establish the new parse state and position. After a successful fsetpos() call, the next operation on an update stream can be either input or output.
