atol: convert a string to a long integer
PROLOGThis manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual. The Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may not be implemented on Linux.
atol, atoll - convert a string to a long integer
The call atol(str) shall be equivalent to:
strtol(str, (char **)NULL, 10)
The call atoll(str) shall be equivalent to:
strtoll(nptr, (char **)NULL, 10)
No errors are defined.
The atol() function is subsumed by strtol() but is retained because it is used extensively in existing code. If the number is not known to be in range, strtol() should be used because atol() is not required to perform any error checking.
