#2968: newlib inttypes.h is missing some methods
 Reporter:  Joel Sherrill  |      Owner:  (none)
     Type:  defect         |     Status:  new
 Priority:  normal         |  Milestone:  4.12
Component:  General        |    Version:  4.12
 Severity:  normal         |   Keywords:
 inttypes.h defines some methods which are not present but required for
 POSIX compliance. They are also included in the FACE General Purpose

 intmax_t  imaxabs(intmax_t);
 imaxdiv_t imaxdiv(intmax_t, intmax_t);
 intmax_t  strtoimax(const char *restrict, char **restrict, int);
 uintmax_t strtoumax(const char *restrict, char **restrict, int);
 intmax_t  wcstoimax(const wchar_t *restrict, wchar_t **restrict, int);
 uintmax_t wcstoumax(const wchar_t *restrict, wchar_t **restrict, int);

 This was originally discussed here
 (https://sourceware.org/ml/newlib/2013/msg00626.html) with follow up
 discussion here (https://sourceware.org/ml/newlib/2017/msg00240.html).

 The consensus seems to be that the methods as currently implemented in
 FreeBSD address the concerns raised in that email thread.

 This ticket is complete when:

 * source for these methods is merged into newlib
 * methods are documented in newlib
 * RSB is updated appropriately
 * tests are added to RTEMS
 * RTEMS POSIX Compliance spreadsheet (https://goo.gl/AXrnxO) is updated
