    bit of support needed

    Could someone explain to me the use of the printf escape sequence:

    \f

    I know it's a form feed but i havn't yet managed to see it work in practice. The compilers i have come across just print a symbol.

    Can anybody give me a demonstration (windows compilers only).

    Send it to your printer. That's the whole purpose of a form feed.

    printf("stuff\nstuff\nstuff\nstuff\nstuff\f");

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
