Join Dan Gookin for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring the printf() function, part of Learning C (2014).
- Everyone's favorite C language…output function seems to be printf.…In most C courses it's the first function you learn because…it's included in the traditional Hello, World! program.…But the function has far more…power than just spewing out text.…In this movie I introduce you to the printf function.…It's another text output function but…one with far more power than puts.…I'll also show you how to incorporate…escape sequences into strings.…In it's most basic form the printf function sends…a string of characters to standard output.…
That means it displays text on the screen.…The printf function is defined in the stdio header file.…The printf function is used twice…in this code in lines five and six.…In this mode printf works a lot like the puts function.…The argument for printf is a single string held…between the functions parentheses.…The string is enclosed in double quotes.…Build and run this code.…The program doesn't air the output is as it should be.…Unlike puts however the printf function doesn't…add a new line character at the end of the string.…
