Linux 2.6 - man page for stddef.h (linux section 7posix)

<stddef.h>(P)			    POSIX Programmer's Manual			    <stddef.h>(P)

NAME
       stddef.h - standard type definitions

SYNOPSIS
       #include <stddef.h>

DESCRIPTION
       The <stddef.h> header shall define the following macros:

       NULL   Null pointer constant.

       offsetof(type, member-designator)

	      Integer  constant  expression  of  type size_t, the value of which is the offset in
	      bytes to the structure member (member-designator), from the beginning of its struc-
	      ture (type).

       The <stddef.h> header shall define the following types:

       ptrdiff_t
	      Signed integer type of the result of subtracting two pointers.

       wchar_t
	      Integer  type whose range of values can represent distinct wide-character codes for
	      all members of the largest character set specified among the locales  supported  by
	      the  compilation environment: the null character has the code value 0 and each mem-
	      ber of the portable character set has a code value equal to its value when used  as
	      the lone character in an integer character constant.

       size_t Unsigned integer type of the result of the sizeof operator.

       The  implementation shall support one or more programming environments in which the widths
       of ptrdiff_t, size_t, and wchar_t are no greater than the width of type long.   The  names
       of these programming environments can be obtained using the confstr() function or the get-
       conf utility.

       The following sections are informative.
