Example: strtol

The following example converts the first number it reads in string, str, to a long integer. It reads the rest of the string into end_string.

    #include <string.h> 
    long l;
    char * end_string, * str = "-569357608END HERE"; 
    l = strtol(str, &end_string, 10);
    lr_output_message ("long=%ld followed by %s", l, end_string);
Output:
Action.c(11): long=-569357608 followed by END HERE
