Hmmm... I'm guessing you mean if snprintf() is given, for example,
("%d %s %s", val, str, nstr) we would do "subcontract" it out as
sprintf(buf, "%d", val) - adjust buf - sprintf(buf, "%s", str) ....
Hmmm, would be even better if, while doing that we "adjust" the
format statements to include precision values based on the 'len'
parameter and keep reducing that as the buf is used up. Tricky but
do-able. If the recently posted snprintf() doesn't work, I'm all
for trying this approach.
