Scilab Function

sprintf - Emulator of C language sprintf function

Calling Sequence




The sprintf function converts, formats, and stores its value parameters, under control of the format parameter.

The format parameter is a character string that contains two types of objects:

  • Literal characters : which are copied to the output stream.
  • Conversion specifications : each of which causes zero or more items to be fetched from the value parameter list. see printf_conversion for details
  • If there are not enough items for format in the value parameter list, sprintf generate an error. If any values remain after the entire format has been processed, they are ignored.

    Note: sprintf is obsolete, use msprintf instead.
