    most recent operation was not input, the fflush function causes any
    unwritten data for that stream to be delivered to the host environment to
    be written to the file; otherwise, the behavior is undefined.
    As is shown above. What is host environment?

    It's a technical term from the C standard. In layman's terms, it's the operating system. Though this definition is not entirely accurate, it is sufficient for all practical purposes.
