Linux 2.6 - man page for ffsl (linux section 3)

FFS(3)				    Linux Programmer's Manual				   FFS(3)

NAME
       ffs, ffsl, ffsll - find first bit set in a word

SYNOPSIS
       #include <strings.h>

       int ffs(int i);

       #include <string.h>

       int ffsl(long int i);

       int ffsll(long long int i);

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       ffs():
	   Since glibc 2.12:
	       _SVID_SOURCE || _BSD_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200809L || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 700
	       ||
	   Before glibc 2.12:
	       none
       ffsl(), ffsll():
	   _GNU_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION
       The ffs() function returns the position of the first (least significant) bit  set  in  the
       word i.	The least significant bit is position 1 and the most significant position is, for
       example, 32 or 64.  The functions ffsll() and ffsl() do the same  but  take  arguments  of
       possibly different size.

RETURN VALUE
       These functions return the position of the first bit set, or 0 if no bits are set in i.

CONFORMING TO
       ffs(): 4.3BSD, POSIX.1-2001.

       The ffsl() and ffsll() functions are glibc extensions.

NOTES
       BSD systems have a prototype in <string.h>.
