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

NAME
       stdlib.h - standard library definitions

SYNOPSIS
       #include <stdlib.h>

DESCRIPTION
       Some  of  the  functionality  described on this reference page extends the ISO C standard.
       Applications shall define the appropriate feature test macro (see  the  System  Interfaces
       volume  of  IEEE Std 1003.1-2001,  Section 2.2, The Compilation Environment) to enable the
       visibility of these symbols in this header.

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

       EXIT_FAILURE
	      Unsuccessful termination for exit(); evaluates to a non-zero value.

       EXIT_SUCCESS
	      Successful termination for exit(); evaluates to 0.

       NULL   Null pointer.

       {RAND_MAX}
	      Maximum value returned by rand(); at least 32767.

       {MB_CUR_MAX}
	      Integer expression whose value is the maximum number of bytes in a character speci-
	      fied by the current locale.

       The following data types shall be defined through typedef:

       div_t  Structure type returned by the div() function.

       ldiv_t Structure type returned by the ldiv() function.

       lldiv_t
	      Structure type returned by the lldiv() function.

       size_t As described in <stddef.h> .

       wchar_t
	      As described in <stddef.h> .

       In addition, the following symbolic names and macros shall be defined as in <sys/wait.h> ,
       for use in decoding the return value from system():

       WNOHANG
       WUNTRACED
       WEXITSTATUS
       WIFEXITED
       WIFSIGNALED
       WIFSTOPPED
       WSTOPSIG
       WTERMSIG

       The following shall be declared as functions and may also be defined as	macros.  Function
       prototypes shall be provided.
