    Yes and no. Yes b'cos, if you've got an integer and trying to printf() an integer, you need to do a %d. By no I meant, if you've a char type and you do a %d printf() for that it'll return you the ASCII value of the character.
    eDIT:
    This topic might have been dealt with the FAQ. So, lookup there as well, you'll find more on it with examples.

    C/C++ Reference's printf() page would be useful.
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar

    Look up a C++ Reference and learn How To Ask Questions The Smart Way
