fprintf

Hello all,

I want to write the following line:

mtext(1, at=Graph, text=sprintf('% 0.2f',MP$LR), line=1)

in a file (for example:Hist.R) in a function as follow:

void Graph()
{
FILE *RH=fopen("Hist .R","w");
..
..
..
fprintf(RH,"mte xt(1, at=Graph, text=sprintf('% 0.2f',MP$LR),
line=1)\n");
..
..
..
fclose(RH);

When I run the program, what program writes in the 'Hist.R' file
is:

mtext(1, at=Graph, text=sprintf('0 .00',MP$LR), line=1)

it is '0.00' instead of '%0.2f'. Can anybody help me to solve
this problem?

Thanks,
Mohsen

1) You need to double the % character in your string above, so that it
is interpreted by fprintf correctly.

2) Consider using iostreams instead of stdio.

fprintf(RH, "%s", "your stuff goes here");
or
fputs("your stuff goes here", RH);

What is currently happening is that fprintf treats your text as
a format string, so it does something with any '%' it sees.

fprintf just is not working. I am using PHP Version 4.3.9. Whatever I do fprintf just fails. For example: fwrite($Handle, 'A1'); fprintf($Handle, 'A2); The first line always works, the second always fails. Likewise any other example.

In the beginning (Kernighan & Ritchie 1978) there was fprintf, and unix write, but no fwrite. That is, no portable C method for writing binary data, only system calls which were OS specific.
