+The fastest unsigned integer type
+of a width of at least N bits,
+N being the value specified in its type name.
+According to the C language standard, they shall be
+capable of storing values in the range [0,
+.BR UINT_FAST N _MAX ],
+substituting N by the appropriate number.

+The length modifiers for the
+.IR uint_fast N _t
+types for the
+.BR printf (3)
+family of functions
+are expanded by macros of the forms
+.BR PRIuFAST N,
+.BR PRIoFAST N,
+.BR PRIxFAST N
+and
+.BR PRIXFAST N
+(defined in
+.IR <inttypes.h> );
+resulting for example in
+.B %"PRIuFAST32"
+or
+.B %"PRIxFAST32"
+for printing
+.I uint_fast32_t
+values.

+Conforming to:

+Notes:
+Some of these types may be optimized for size
+instead of raw performance.
