## NAME

abs, labs, llabs, imaxabs- compute theabsolute 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 (seefeature_test_macros(7)):llabs(): _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L; orcc -std=c99DESCRIPTION

Theabs() function computes the absolute value of the integer argumentj. Thelabs(),llabs() andimaxabs() functions compute the absolute value of the argumentjof 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 theabs() andlabs() functions; the functionsllabs() andimaxabs() were added in C99.## NOTES

Trying to take the absolute value of the most negative integer is not defined. Thellabs() function is included in glibc since version 2.0, but is not in libc5 or libc4. Theimaxabs() function is included in glibc since version 2.1.1. Forllabs() to be declared, it may be necessary to define_ISOC99_SOURCEor_ISOC9X_SOURCE(depending on the version of glibc) before including any standard headers. GCC handlesabs() andlabs() as built-in functions. GCC 3.0 also handlesllabs() andimaxabs() as built-ins.## SEE ALSO
