Subject ssize_t vs. size_t
Date Tue, 26 Oct 1999 23:15:45 GMT
According to Single Unix, size_t is "Used for sizes of objects" while
ssize_t is "Used for a count of bytes or an error indication." I take
this to mean that size_t can be unsigned and ssize_t is signed.  But,
since APR does its errors completely differently, ssize_t is
unnecessary. Should/Can I just replace the ap_ssize_t's with

And yeah, all this ap_size_t stuff is pedantic, but I figure it'll be
useful once we're doing 64-bit I/O.
