fmt_human — write a human readable ASCII representation of a long integer

Syntax

#include <fmt.h>

size_t fmt_human(char *dest,unsigned long long source);

Description

fmt_human writes a human readable ASCII representation of source to dest and returns the number of bytes written. The result resembles the file size output of "ls -H"; 1000 becomes "1.0k", 1000000 becomes "1.0M" and so on for "G" and "T".

fmt_human does not append \0.

If dest equals FMT_LEN (i.e. is zero), fmt_human returns the number of bytes it would have written.

The output of fmt_human can not exceed 11 (assuming unsigned long long has 64 bits).
