Converts a string into an integer value with type intmax_t

#include <inttypes.h>
intmax_t strtoimax ( const char * restrict s , char ** restrict endptr ,
                    int base  );

The strtoimax( ) function is similar to strtol( ), except that it converts a string to an integer value of type intmax_t. If the conversion fails, strtoimax( ) returns 0. If the result of the conversion exceeds the range of the type intmax_t, then strtoimax( ) returns the value of INTMAX_MAX or INTMAX_MIN, and sets the errno variable to the value of ERANGE ("range error").


See the example for the analogous function strtol( ) in this chapter.
