Hi all,

GNULIB doesn't seem to be providing function prototypes for several
strto* replacement functions.  Is this intentional?  The protos for
strtoll() and strtoull() are required by C99 (not C89) and I imagine
might therefore be missing from the C89 <stdlib.h> I understood GNULIB
was assuming, though I haven't confirmed a platform that doesn't
provide these protos in its <stdlib.h> header.

In the case of strtoimax & strtoumax, the <inttypes.h> header which is
supposed to provide the proto is part of C99 and cannot be included
unconditionally under the current set of GNULIB assumptions, as I
understood them 6 months back.  I can confirm that at least Solaris 9
requires the GNULIB replacement strtoumax() and does not provide a
proto for the same in its <inttypes.h> (if it even has an <inttypes.h>).

Would a patch to provide a "strtoimax.h" and "strtoumax.h" with the
strtoimax and strtoumax GNULIB modules be welcomed?

Thanks,

Derek
