SYNOPSIS

#include <stdlib.h>

char *qecvt(long double number, int ndigits, int *decpt, int *sign);

char *qfcvt(long double number, int ndigits, int *decpt, int *sign);

char *qgcvt(long double number, int ndigit, char *buf);

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

qecvt(), qfcvt(), qgcvt(): _SVID_SOURCE  

DESCRIPTION

The functions qecvt(), qfcvt() and qgcvt() are identical to ecvt(3), fcvt(3) and gcvt(3) respectively, except that they use a long double argument number. See ecvt(3) and gcvt(3).  

ATTRIBUTES

 

Multithreading (see pthreads(7))

The qecvt() and qfcvt() functions are not thread-safe.

The qgcvt() function is thread-safe.  

CONFORMING TO

SVr4. Not seen in most common UNIX implementations, but occurs in SunOS. Not supported by libc4 and libc5. Supported by glibc.
