Hi All, When you create a function with a unknown length of parameters you can use ..., for example: void foo(char *bla, ...) But now i want to pass all ... vars 2 printf how can i do this?

Should we warn him that non-POD types cannot be passed to such functions, or should we let him discover it all by himself ?

Hi All,

I have it working with the following code :

va_start(arglist, information);
vsprintf(buffer1, information, arglist);
strcpy(buffer2, "\t/*\t");
strcat(buffer2, buffer1);
/* Calculate needed end tabs */
tabs = TAB - (strlen(buffer2) - (strlen(buffer2) % 8)) / 8; if (tabs > 0)
for (cc = 0; cc < tabs; cc++)
strcat(buffer2, "\t");
strcat(buffer2, "*/\n");
print(buffer2); /* Custom functions for printing 2 a buffer */


Thx for the information!


With kind regards,
