SYNOPSIS

#include <stdlib.h>

"char *ecvt_r(double "number", int "ndigits", int *"decpt, "int *"sign", char *"buf", size_t "len);

"char *fcvt_r(double "number", int "ndigits", int *"decpt, "int *"sign", char *"buf", size_t "len);

"char *qecvt_r(long double "number", int "ndigits", int *"decpt, "int *"sign", char *"buf", size_t "len);

"char *qfcvt_r(long double "number", int "ndigits", int *"decpt, "int *"sign", char *"buf", size_t "len);

DESCRIPTION

The functions ecvt_r, fcvt_r, qecvt_r and qfcvt_r are identical to ecvt, fcvt, qecvt and qfcvt, respectively, except that they do not return their result in a static buffer, but instead use the supplied buf of size len. See ecvt(3) and qecvt(3).

NOTES

These functions are obsolete. Instead, sprintf() is recommended.

"CONFORMING TO"

These functions are GNU extensions.

"SEE ALSO"

ecvt(3), qecvt(3), sprintf(3)
