    You mean like printf() and scanf() ?

    Sure you can.
    Life begins with stdarg.h
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    I haven't the slightest clue what defination is even. Nor do I understand what you're after.

    He's a doctor, a PhD; we wouldn't understand him, obviously.

    I guess you're looking for "variadic functions"

    But if not, here's a picture to entertain you (thanks to JackOfAllTrades for finding this)

    Don't you people know how to use google?

    First hit:

    "A portmanteau of the words Definition and Defamation. This is the act of going to the trouble of inaccurately defining a word on Urbandictionary just to make a private joke at the expense of a member of your extended social circle, who, since you'll have to go to the trouble of dragging them to a computer, telling them the Urbandictiony url to type in, and then telling them which is the one word out of thousands that personally mentions the name of the person to get any kind of reaction out of them, thus negating the possible humour from the act of the joke, (since this is like having to stop and explain a joke after telling it), and thereby confusing the issue for everyone else in the world who is obviously not either you and your two sniggering sychopantic hanger-ons who think this kind of thing is even remotely interesting or clever."
    iMalc: Your compiler doesn't accept misspellings and bad syntax, so why should we?
    justin777: I have no idea what you are talking about sorry, I use a laptop and there is no ascii eject or something

    Perhaps if you ask the question again, giving us just a bit more information...

    Specifially: Which functions?

    Now when you say define, what do you mean exactly? Be more specific.

    9/19/2010 am --- Well, it's official. I am no longer going to my email in the morning to read
    my daily Dilbert. I'm coming here first! My wife will get a huge kick out of this one when she comes home from work! There's been a few times when I felt like responding to vague question like this thread. How much trouble could I get in if I did the same thing? Never mind,
    I don't want to find out! And if I haven't already, please remind me to never pi$$ you off! :-D

    I've read this thread from top to bottom, something like 20x, and when I read this reply, it sounds like you're asking the OP to add more information. That makes sense to me. Could you please re-post your thoughts on this matter again? I just want to make sure that I understand that the OP did not post enough information, in the likely case that I missed something. Thanks in advance.

    LOLROFL @ the bunny! Looks just like my sister's.


    On topic: Could you be talking about formatted strings that are related to functions like printf, sprintf, scanf, snprintf?

    The easiest way to find out is to stop replying to this thread and wait for the OP to clarify. I certainly intend to.
