The following is the standards wording for adding ``"ungetc"
at the beginning of a file'' to the list of obsolete
features in Future Libary Directions.

Add an item to Future Library Directions:

        x.x Use of "ungetc" at beginning of file

        The use of "ungetc" on a binary stream where the
        file position indicator is zero prior to the call is
        an obsolescent feature.
