Long time ago that I did C programming. When I remember it right,
fprintf is basically the same as printf with one difference: printf
writes to standard output, fprintf to a stream.

from http://www.unet.univie.ac.at/aix/libs/basetrf1/printf.htm :

int printf (Format, [Value, . . .])
const char *Format;

int fprintf (Stream, Format, [Value, . . .])
FILE *Stream;
const char *Format;

So "man printf" or the above mentioned webpage should do ...
