STRTOL(3)		 BSD Library Functions Manual		     STRTOL(3)

NAME
     strtol, strtoll, strtoimax, strtoq — convert a string value to a long,
     long long, intmax_t or quad_t integer

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <stdlib.h>
     #include <limits.h>

     long
     strtol(const char * restrict nptr, char ** restrict endptr, int base);

     long long
     strtoll(const char * restrict nptr, char ** restrict endptr, int base);

     #include <inttypes.h>

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

     #include <sys/types.h>
     #include <stdlib.h>
     #include <limits.h>

     quad_t
     strtoq(const char *nptr, char **endptr, int base);

DESCRIPTION
     The strtol() function converts the string in nptr to a long value.	 The
     strtoll() function converts the string in nptr to a long long value.  The
     strtoimax() function converts the string in nptr to an intmax_t value.
     The strtoq() function converts the string in nptr to a quad_t value.  The
     conversion is done according to the given base, which must be between 2
     and 36 inclusive, or be the special value 0.

     The string may begin with an arbitrary amount of white space (as deter‐
     mined by isspace(3)) followed by a single optional ‘+’ or ‘-’ sign.  If
     base is zero or 16, the string may then include a “0x” prefix, and the
     number will be read in base 16; otherwise, a zero base is taken as 10
     (decimal) unless the next character is ‘0’, in which case it is taken as
     8 (octal).

     The remainder of the string is converted to a long, long long, intmax_t
     or quad_t value in the obvious manner, stopping at the first character
     which is not a valid digit in the given base.  (In bases above 10, the
     letter ‘A’ in either upper or lower case represents 10, ‘B’ represents
     11, and so forth, with ‘Z’ representing 35.)

     If endptr is not NULL, strtol() stores the address of the first invalid
     character in *endptr.  If there were no digits at all, however, strtol()
     stores the original value of nptr in *endptr.  (Thus, if *nptr is not
     ‘\0’ but **endptr is ‘\0’ on return, the entire string was valid.)

RETURN VALUES
     The strtol(), strtoll(), strtoimax() and strtoq() functions return the
     result of the conversion, unless the value would underflow or overflow.
     If no conversion could be performed, 0 is returned and the global vari‐
     able errno is set to EINVAL (the last feature is not portable across all
     platforms).  If an overflow or underflow occurs, errno is set to ERANGE
     and the function return value is clamped according to the following ta‐
     ble.

	   Function	  underflow    overflow
	   strtol()	  LONG_MIN     LONG_MAX
	   strtoll()	  LLONG_MIN    LLONG_MAX
	   strtoimax()	  INTMAX_MIN   INTMAX_MAX
	   strtoq()	  LLONG_MIN    LLONG_MAX

ERRORS
     [EINVAL]		The value of base is not supported or no conversion
			could be performed (the last feature is not portable
			across all platforms).

     [ERANGE]		The given string was out of range; the value converted
			has been clamped.

STANDARDS
     The strtol() function conforms to ISO/IEC 9899:1990 (“ISO C90”).  The
     strtoll() and strtoimax() functions conform to ISO/IEC 9899:1999
     (“ISO C99”).  The BSD strtoq() function is deprecated.
