Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
getc_unlocked(), getchar_unlocked(), putc_unlocked(),
putchar_unlocked(): _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 1 || _XOPEN_SOURCE ||
_POSIX_SOURCE || _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE
clearerr_unlocked(), feof_unlocked(), ferror_unlocked(),
fileno_unlocked(), fflush_unlocked(), fgetc_unlocked(),
fputc_unlocked(), fread_unlocked(), fwrite_unlocked(): _BSD_SOURCE ||
_SVID_SOURCE
fgets_unlocked(), fputs_unlocked(), getwc_unlocked(),
getwchar_unlocked(), fgetwc_unlocked(), fputwc_unlocked(),
putwchar_unlocked(), fgetws_unlocked(), fputws_unlocked(): _GNU_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION

Each of these functions has the same behavior as its counterpart without the "_unlocked" suffix, except that they do not use locking (they do not set locks themselves, and do not test for the presence of locks set by others) and hence are thread-unsafe. See flockfile(3).

CONFORMING TO

The four functions getc_unlocked(), getchar_unlocked(), putc_unlocked(), putchar_unlocked() are in POSIX.1-2001.

The nonstandard *_unlocked() variants occur on a few Unix systems, and are available in recent glibc. They should probably not be used.
