msprintf

converts, formats, and writes data in a string

sprintf

Calling Sequence

str=msprintf(format,a1,...,an);

Arguments

format

a Scilab string describing the format to use to write the remaining operands.

str

a character string.

a1,...,an

Specifies the data to be converted and printed according to the format parameter.

Description

The msprintf writes formatted operands in its returned value (a Scilab string). The argument operands are formatted under control of the format operand.

Note that, in this case, the escape sequences ("\n") (in format) split string to a matrix of string (see example).

Examples

msprintf('%5.3f %5.3f',123,0.732)
msprintf('%5.3f\n%5.3f',123,0.732)
msprintf('--%s-\n-%d--',"hello",3)
msprintf('%e ', [1;2;3])
msprintf('%d %d\n', [1, 2; 3, 4])
