    printf()

    What are all them character formatting things for? I mean those flags after the string output. What are they used for? I don't understand them.
    What will people say if they hear that I'm a Jesus freak?
    What will people do if they find that it's true?
    I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak, there is no disguising the truth!

    Do you mean, right, left, setw(n), setfill(), setprecision, etc?

    int integer = 10;
    float _float = 2.5
    char string[] = foo;

    printf("%d is an integer\n%f is a float\n%s is a string", integer, _float, string);

    Output:
    10 is an integer
    2.5 is a float
    foo is a string
