Of course, with the introduction of wide characters, the sprintf functions blossomed in number, creating a thoroughly confusing jumble of function names. Here's a chart that shows all the sprintf functions supported by Microsoft's C run−time library and by Windows. ASCII Wide−Character Generic Standard Version sprintf swprintf _stprintf Max−Length Version _snprintf _snwprintf _sntprintf Windows Version wsprintfA wsprintfW wsprintf Standard Version vsprintf vswprintf _vstprintf Max−Length Version _vsnprintf _vsnwprintf _vsntprintf Windows Version wvsprintfA wvsprintfW wvsprintf Variable Number of Arguments Pointer to Array of Arguments In the wide−character versions of the sprintf functions, the string buffer is defined as a wide−character string.
However, this character set did not include enough accented letters for all Western European languages that used 17 the Latin alphabet, and it was not quite appropriate for Windows. Windows didn't need line−drawing characters because it had an entire graphics system. 0 (released in November 1985), Microsoft didn't entirely abandon the IBM extended character set, but it was relegated to secondary importance. 0 Programmer's Reference is shown in Figure 2−2. 0− 1− 2− −0 * * −1 * * −2 * −3 3− 4− 5− 6− 7− 8− 9− A− 0 @ P ` p * * !
Everyone knows that enhancements to "hello, world" will need the formatted text output of printf eventually, so we might as well start using it at the outset. The bad news is that you can't use printf in a Windows program. Although you can use most of the C run−time library in Windows programsindeed, many programmers prefer to use the C memory management and file I/O functions over the Windows equivalentsWindows has no concept of standard input and standard output. You can use fprintf in a Windows program, but not printf.
