I suggest adding the following (or something similar) to config.h:
#define longest long long
#define PRILONGEST_PREFIX "ll"
#define longest long
#define PRILONGEST_PREFIX "l"
#define PRIdLONGEST PRILONGEST_PREFIX "d"
#define PRIiLONGEST PRILONGEST_PREFIX "i"
#define PRIoLONGEST PRILONGEST_PREFIX "o"
#define PRIuLONGEST PRILONGEST_PREFIX "u"
#define PRIxLONGEST PRILONGEST_PREFIX "x"
#define PRIXLONGEST PRILONGEST_PREFIX "X"
I'm unsure whether it's better to use a macro or a typedef for the
type. Using a macro allows the use of "unsigned longest" rather than
requiring a separate typedef (e.g. "u_longest").
I have no particular preference as to the name of the macro/type, or
whether to use upper or lower case for a macro (a typedef should use
The PRI* syntax is intended to mirror the C99 macros from
<inttypes.h>. The definition doesn't include the leading "%", so that
you can include flags, a field width and/or a precision.
