     stddef -- standard type definitions

     #include <stddef.h>

     The <stddef.h> header defines the following types and macros:

	 1.   ptrdiff_t, a signed integer type of the result of subtracting two pointers;

	 2.   size_t, an unsigned integer type of the result of the sizeof() operator;

	 3.   wchar_t, an integer type whose range of values can represent distinct wide-charac-
	      ter codes for all members of the largest character set specified among the sup-
	      ported locales: the null character has the code value 0 and each member of the
	      character set has a code value equal to its value when used as the lone character
	      in an integer character constant;

	 4.   NULL, which expands to an implementation-defined null pointer constant; and

	 5.   offsetof(), a macro that expands to an integer constant as described in

     Some of the described types and macros may appear also in other headers.

     offsetof(3), stdlib(3), unistd(3)

     As described here, the <stddef.h> header conforms to ISO/IEC 9899:1999 (``ISO C99'') and
     IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (``POSIX.1'').  Some of the types and macros conform to earlier stan-
     dards such as ANSI X3.159-1989 (``ANSI C89'').

     In the current form the <stddef.h> header was introduced in NetBSD 0.8, the first official
     release of NetBSD.  Some definitions such as NULL were first introduced already in the
     <nsys/param.h> header of Version 4 AT&T UNIX.
