P.S.: Reading through the logs: No, %t isn't part of the C standard.  
It's an extension. Looking at the BSD man pages for things is a bad  
idea when one wants to stay portable, since BSD introduces tons of  
extensions to virtually everything (I've been bitten by this, too,  
since OS X is in many ways a BSD system). Same goes for Linux man  
pages, BTW ;-).

A good reference is the OpenGroup, at least regarding POSIX, the  
relevant page is here: <http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/007908799/ 
xsh/fprintf.html>

Another good ref are usually the pages of the MKS Toolkit:

Funny to look at a sofware which is meant for Windows, but hey, they  
write this stuff with portability in mind to start with :-).


Cheers,
Max
