After having waded through this long series of comments, I am left
wondering just how this got addressed. Does --no-warn-unused-result
mean that fwrite() usage may be cast to void, or that it may be
treated as if it were a void procedure? I think it is very reasonable
to warn if a returned result is not handled. Casting to void is
a valid way to handle the result. I would like warnings when returned
results are not handled. What does the fix do?
