ABS(3)                     Library Functions Manual                     ABS(3)



NAME
       abs - integer absolute value

SYNOPSIS
       abs(i)
       int i;

DESCRIPTION
       abs() returns the absolute value of its integer operand.

SEE ALSO
       ieee_functions(3M) for fabs()

BUGS
       Applying  the  abs()  function to the most negative integer generates a
       result which is the most negative integer.   That  is,  abs(0x80000000)
       returns 0x80000000 as a result.
