NAME
  limits - Header files	for implementation-specific constants

SYNOPSIS

  #include <&lt;limits.h>&gt;
  #include <&lt;float.h>&gt;
  #include <&lt;sys/limits.h>&gt;

DESCRIPTION

  The header file limits.h specifies the sizes of integral types as required
  by the proposed ANSI C standard.  The	header file float.h specifies the
  characteristics of floating types as required	by the proposed	ANSI C stan-
  dard.	 The constants that refer to long doubles that should appear in
  float.h are not specified because long doubles are not implemented.  The
  header file sys/limits.h is a	list of	magnitude limitations imposed by a
  specific implementation of the operating system.  All	values in the files
  are specified	in decimal.
