    Format specifiers in C

    Some of the format specifiers which I am aware of in C is %d, %f, %s, %c.Is there any other format specifier available? If so let me know about it.

    Janelyn there are yet many format specifiers apart from the one mentioned by you. They are
    %c single character
    %d and %i both used for integer type
    %u used for representing unsigned integer
    %o octal integer unsigned
    %x,%X used for representing hex unsigned integer
    %e, %E, %f, %g, %G floating type
    %s strings that is sequence of characters
