When trying to use a library (ArduinoUnit) I ran into an issue where the library expects the itoa function to have the signature itoa(int val, char* buf, int base). This is consistent with the AVR documentation (apparently a URL looks too spamy so I can't provide it here). However when I looked in stdlib.h I found that it has the signature itoa(char * buf, int val, int base).

Changing the library was not difficult, but it would be convenient if the signatures matched to begin with.

Thanks for the post. The itoa() and related signatures are changed in the test build, which may soon become the official build.
