APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
The <xxcvt.h> header file provides several C runtime conversion
functions.  Here is a list of the conversion functions:

QXXDTOP
QXXDTOZ
QXXITOP
QXXITOZ
QXXPTOD
QXXPTOI
QXXZTOD
QXXZTOI

The existing integer functions accept four byte integers.  It is
requested that new functions be added for eight byte integers.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE52187 :
-----------------------------
Four new conversion functions will be provided and will be added
to the <xxcvt.h> header file.

The following conversion functions will be added:

QXXLLTOP
QXXLLTOZ
QXXPTOLL
QXXZTOLL

These functions will be similar to the QXXITOP, QXXITOZ,
QXXPTOI, and QXXZTOI functions except that eight byte integers
will be used instead of four byte integers.  A data type of
'long long' will be used instead of a data type of 'int'.

Here are the prototypes for the new functions:

void      QXXLLTOP(unsigned char *, int, int, long long);
void      QXXLLTOZ(unsigned char *, int, int, long long);
long long QXXPTOLL(unsigned char *, int, int);
long long QXXZTOLL(unsigned char *, int, int);

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE52187 :
