NAME ^

printf - format and print data

SYNOPSIS ^

printf format [ argument ... ]

DESCRIPTION ^

The printf command uses the first argument as the format that describes how to print the remaining arguments. Unlike the standard printf(1) command, this one uses the Perl version, which means that the \v escape is not supported, but various other things are. See "sprintf" in perlfunc for details.

RESTRICTIONS ^

This command should not be used in setuid programs as it does not run untaint its argments and will trigger errors like Insecure dependency in eval while running setuid at /opt/ppt/bin/printf line 16.

SEE ALSO ^

printf(3), "sprintf" in perlfunc
