L3TOL(3)                   Library Functions Manual                   L3TOL(3)



NAME
       l3tol, ltol3 - convert between 3-byte integers and long integers

SYNOPSIS
       l3tol(lp, cp, n)
       long *lp;
       char *cp;

       ltol3(cp, lp, n)
       char *cp;
       long *lp;

DESCRIPTION
       L3tol  converts a list of n three-byte integers packed into a character
       string pointed to by cp into a list of long integers pointed to by lp.

       Ltol3 performs the reverse conversion from long integers (lp) to three-
       byte integers (cp).

       These  functions are useful for file-system maintenance; disk addresses
       are three bytes long.
