Solaris 10 What's New

New Functions for Converting Strings

This feature is new in the Solaris Express 7/04 release.

Two new functions for converting strings to long integers are now available to kernel module developers. The ddi_strtol() and ddi_strtoul() functions enable conversion from strings to long integers and unsigned long integers respectively. The new functions provide flexible input, DDI compliancy, and increased error detection.

For more information, refer to the ddi_strtol(9F) and ddi_strtoul(9F) man pages.
