Description dickson 2000-01-18 16:36:47 UTC
Printf format error:
$ cat awk.test
awk 'BEGIN {
                _n=1234567
                system ("rpm -qf /usr/bin/awk")
                system ("uname -r")
                 printf("|%12.0f|\n",_n)
                 printf("|%12.1f|\n",_n)
                 }'
$ ./awk.test # produces :
gawk-3.0.4-1
2.2.12-20
|000001234567|
|   1234567.0|
Notice the "zero" filled field in %12.0f (this is wrong), but not in
%12.1f

Now same thing in RH 6.0:
gawk-3.0.3-7
2.2.5-15
|     1234567|
|   1234567.0|
