STRTOIMAX(3P)             POSIX Programmer's Manual            STRTOIMAX(3P)

PROLOG         top

       This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual.  The Linux
       implementation of this interface may differ (consult the
       corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or
       the interface may not be implemented on Linux.

NAME         top

       strtoimax, strtoumax — convert string to integer type

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <inttypes.h>

       intmax_t strtoimax(const char *restrict nptr, char **restrict endptr,
           int base);
       uintmax_t strtoumax(const char *restrict nptr, char **restrict endptr,
           int base);

DESCRIPTION         top

       The functionality described on this reference page is aligned with
       the ISO C standard. Any conflict between the requirements described
       here and the ISO C standard is unintentional. This volume of
       POSIX.1‐2008 defers to the ISO C standard.

       These functions shall be equivalent to the strtol(), strtoll(),
       strtoul(), and strtoull() functions, except that the initial portion
       of the string shall be converted to intmax_t and uintmax_t
       representation, respectively.

RETURN VALUE         top

       These functions shall return the converted value, if any.

       If no conversion could be performed, zero shall be returned and errno
       may be set to [EINVAL].

       If the value of base is not supported, 0 shall be returned and errno
       shall be set to [EINVAL].

       If the correct value is outside the range of representable values,
       {INTMAX_MAX}, {INTMAX_MIN}, or {UINTMAX_MAX} shall be returned
       (according to the return type and sign of the value, if any), and
       errno shall be set to [ERANGE].

ERRORS         top

       These functions shall fail if:

       EINVAL The value of base is not supported.

       ERANGE The value to be returned is not representable.

       These functions may fail if:

       EINVAL No conversion could be performed.

       The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES         top

       None.

APPLICATION USAGE         top

       Since the value of *endptr is unspecified if the value of base is not
       supported, applications should either ensure that base has a
       supported value (0 or between 2 and 36) before the call, or check for
       an [EINVAL] error before examining *endptr.

RATIONALE         top

       None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS         top

       None.
