|stddef.h(0P)||POSIX Programmer's Manual||stddef.h(0P)|
The <stddef.h> header shall define the following macros:
- Null pointer constant. The macro shall expand to an integer constant expression with the value 0 cast to type void *.
- offsetof(type, member-designator)
Integer constant expression of type size_t, the value of which is the offset in bytes to the structure member (member-designator), from the beginning of its structure (type).
The <stddef.h> header shall define the following types:
- Signed integer type of the result of subtracting two pointers.
- Integer type whose range of values can represent distinct codes for all members of the largest extended character set specified among the supported locales; the null character shall have the code value zero. Each member of the basic character set shall have a code value equal to its value when used as the lone character in an integer character constant if an implementation does not define __STDC_MB_MIGHT_NEQ_WC__.
- Unsigned integer type of the result of the sizeof operator.
The implementation shall support one or more programming environments in which the widths of ptrdiff_t, size_t, and wchar_t are no greater than the width of type long. The names of these programming environments can be obtained using the confstr() function or the getconf utility.
