Description Ulrich Drepper 2007-09-20 20:18:06 EDT
Description of problem:
When using code like

   printf "%'d %d"

in a script currently both numbers are printed using thousand separators (given
the numbers are large enough).  This is not correct, the flag should not be sticky.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.store this in a file:

env LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 \
./gawk < /dev/null -f /dev/fd/3 3<<'EOF'
END { printf "%'d %d\n", 1000000000000, 1000000000000 }

2. run using bash or so
Actual results:
1,000,000,000,000 1,000,000,000,000

Expected results:
1,000,000,000,000 1000000000000

Additional info:
I'll attach a patch.

Applied in gawk-3.1.5-16.fc9, together with a patch for a new test case which
checks for this bug.
