C; libraries

The C programming language has the ability for users to define libraries of procedures. Some of these libraries have now become part of the ANSI standard definition of the language.

The standard libraries include:

  1. assert - has some diagnostic functions
  2. ctype - contains the character class test
  3. math - contains a lot of mathematics related functions
  4. setjmp - which have to do with non local jumps
  5. signal - not sure what this does!
  6. stdarg - contain stuff for handling variable list arguments
  7. stdio - handles access to files and the screen
  8. stdlib - mainly includes the data type conversion functions
  9. string - the string handling functions
  10. time - lots of time related functions
