v1.2.112 - kfun - sscanf

NAME

sscanf - simple string parser

SYNOPSIS

int sscanf(string str, string fmt, ...)

DESCRIPTION

Parse the string str, using the format string fmt. The following character sequences have a special meaning in the format string: %s match a substring %d match a number %f match a floating-point number %c match a character %% match single % Other characters must be matched exactly. %*s, %*d, %*f and %*c can be used to match without assignment. Matched substrings and numbers are assigned to the successive lvalue arguments following the format string. The number of matched substrings and numbers is returned.

ERRORS

An error is caused if the format string is malformed, or if too few lvalue arguments were given.
