    Unhappy space between input

    Hello I have a problem I want to print 3 spaces between the output given the code

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    int main (void)
    {
    //Local Declaration
    	int intNum;
    	int oneDigit;
    	int threeDigit;
    	int twoDigit;
    
    //Statements
    	printf("Enter an integral number: ");
    	scanf("&#37;d", &intNum);
    	
    	oneDigit = intNum % 10;
    	twoDigit = intNum % 100;
    	threeDigit = intNum % 1000;
    	
    	printf("0%d\n",intNum);
    	printf("%d\n",intNum);
    	printf("%d\n", threeDigit);
    	printf("%d\n", twoDigit);
    	printf("%d\n", oneDigit);
    	
    	return 0;
    }*/
     //main


    The out put is
    Code:
    01234
    1234
    234
    34
    4
    The output should be
    Code:
    0   1   2   3   4
    1   2   3   4
    2   3   4
    3   4
    4
    how can I do this?
    Thank you dNNNY

    How about just
    printf("something something");
    Note spaces ^

    So you probably didn't write this code. Put a space in the format string for your printf() calls.

    I did write it
    The question was
    write a program that prompts the user for an integer value between 0 62767 then prints the individual digits with 3 spaces between the digits.The first line is to start with the leftmost digit and print all 5 digits, the second line is to start with the second digit from the left and print 4 digits and so fourth.
    I wrote this code but I we have not covered this so far in the class. I am new to this

    Look at your printf statements. The program prints whatever is in the quotes. Do you see spaces inside those quotes?

    I think there's no such function or format string. Write a loop that prints one digit after another. A little hint, modulo is needed here. When dividing the number with 10, the remainder is the last digit; dividing the number with 100 leaves the last two digits as remainder, and so on...

    It's not that hard and it's imho a common exercise in school when beginning with programming.

    Edit: I just realised that you already have some modulo there. But you still need the loop, because printf() can't print an int containing 1234 as "1 2 3 4".

    the number is inputed all at the same time
    "enter a integer" 1234
    If I put a space it will print " 1234"
    I want it to print "1 2 3 4"

    the question is asking me
    write a program that prompts the user for an integer value between 0 62767
    then prints the individual digits with 3 spaces between the digits

    Yes. Good. So don't print the number -- print the digits! That's what you spent all that time picking off oneDigit and twoDigit and threeDigit (and hint: you very well may need a fourDigit) for.
