ABS

Section: Linux Programmer's Manual (3)
Updated: 2015-03-02
Index Return to Main Contents
 

NAME

abs, labs, llabs, imaxabs - compute the absolute value of an integer  

SYNOPSIS

#include <stdlib.h>

int abs(int j);

long int labs(long int j);
long long int llabs(long long int j); #include <inttypes.h> intmax_t imaxabs(intmax_t j);

Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

llabs():

_XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
or cc -std=c99
 

DESCRIPTION

The abs() function computes the absolute value of the integer argument j. The labs(), llabs() and imaxabs() functions compute the absolute value of the argument j of the appropriate integer type for the function.  

RETURN VALUE

Returns the absolute value of the integer argument, of the appropriate integer type for the function.

CONFORMING TO

SVr4, POSIX.1-2001, 4.3BSD, C99. C89 only includes the abs() and labs() functions; the functions llabs() and imaxabs() were added in C99.  

NOTES

Trying to take the absolute value of the most negative integer is not defined.

The llabs() function is included in glibc since version 2.0. The imaxabs() function is included in glibc since version 2.1.1.

For llabs() to be declared, it may be necessary to define _ISOC99_SOURCE or _ISOC9X_SOURCE (depending on the version of glibc) before including any standard headers.

By default, GCC handles abs(), labs(), and (since GCC 3.0) llabs() and imaxabs() as built-in functions.
