"%%" seems to work in Visual Studio, don't know if it's the standard way though.

You need to escape it, instead of just putting % or ", you do \% and \", the same for any other character that C++ might think of as it's own.

Are you sure? The difference is that % is not a special sign to C++, it's not until printf recieves the string that it starts identifing the %s.

Oh yeah my bad, I don't think I was thinking when I read that, I reacted on instinct :P Yeah, that character is most likely function specific, so...I think %% should work then.
