The following example uses **abs **to convert the integers 23 and -11 to their absolute values:

int m = 23, n = -11;

lr_output_message ("absolute value of %d = %d", m,abs(m));

lr_output_message ("absolute value of %d = %d", n,abs(n));

Output:

Action.c(5): absolute value of 23 = 23

Action.c(6): absolute value of -11 = 11
