NAME
stdlib -- standard library definitions
SYNOPSIS
#include <stdlib.h>
DESCRIPTION
The <stdlib.h> header defines the following types and macros: 1. NULL - an implementation-defined null pointer constant; 2. size_t and wchar_t - integer types described in stddef(3); 3. div_t, ldiv_t, and lldiv_t - structures that are returned by the div(3), ldiv(3), and lldiv(3) functions, respectively; 4. RAND_MAX - a macro which expands to an integer constant that is the maximum value returned by the rand(3) function; 5. MB_CUR_MAX - an integer expression of type size_t whose value is the maximum number of bytes in a character specified by the cur- rent locale; and 6. EXIT_SUCCESS and EXIT_FAILURE - macros which expand to integer constants suitable for use as an argument to the exit(3) func- tion. The <stdlib.h> header also prototypes several important functions such as abort(3), atoi(3), bsearch(3), free(3), malloc(3), and strtol(3).
