    I have no idea what you want, so if the following example doesn't help, please be more specific and use code tags to preserve formatting:
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    #define length(a) ( sizeof (a) / sizeof *(a) )
    
    int main ( void )
    {
      int a[] = {1,10,100,1000};
      int i;
    
      for ( i = 0; i < length ( a ); i++ )
        printf ( "%-5d***\n", a[i] );
      puts ( "" );
    
      for ( i = 0; i < length ( a ); i++ )
        printf ( "%5d***\n", a[i] );
      puts ( "" );
    
      for ( i = 0; i < length ( a ); i++ )
        printf ( "***%5d\n", a[i] );
      puts ( "" );
    
      for ( i = 0; i < length ( a ); i++ )
        printf ( "***%-5d\n", a[i] );
    
      return 0;
    }
    My best code is written with the delete key.
