C/C++ — printf — Number of chars to output

by

If you want to output a specified number of chars from a char array using a printf-like function, you can use:

char buffer[] = “Hi there!”;
int n = 2;
printf(“%.*s”, n, buffer); // outputs “Hi”

It will output only the first n number of characters form buffer.
