will help you The "signed-size_t" is not part of standard C, instead it's specific to POSIX (Unix, BSD, Linux, etc) and it's in sys/types.h:

With these it helps In the first case you're assigning to an unsigned type - a. In the second case you're using the wrong format specifier. The second specifier should be %zd instead of %zu.

may help you . There's no guarantee in the POSIX standard that sizeof(int) >= sizeof(ssize_t), nor the other way around. Typically ssize_t is larger than int, but the safe and portable option in C99 is to use intmax_t instead for the argument and the return value.
The only guarantees you have wrt. the relationship between int and ssize_t are:
Adding Strings and ssize_t?

Adding Strings and ssize_t?

it helps some times I have a question on adding strings and data types. What does it mean to use them in such arithmetic? Does body + size mean that it is creating a new block of memory that includes both of them?
code :
char *body;
ssize_t size;
body + size
memcpy(body + size, buffer, octets);
should use size_t or ssize_t

should use size_t or ssize_t

around this issue ssize_t is used for functions whose return value could either be a valid size, or a negative value to indicate an error. It is guaranteed to be able to store values at least in the range [-1, SSIZE_MAX] (SSIZE_MAX is system-dependent).
So you should use size_t whenever you mean to return a size in bytes, and ssize_t whenever you would return either a size in bytes or a (negative) error value.
