sscanf

Summary
#include <stdio.h>

int sscanf (
  char *buffer,           /* scanf input buffer */
  const char *fmtstr      /* format string */
  〚, arguments...〛);    /* additional arguments */
Description

The sscanf function reads data from the string buffer. Data input are stored in the locations specified by argument according to the format string fmtstr. Each argument must be a pointer to a variable that corresponds to the type defined in fmtstr. The type specified in fmtstr controls the interpretation of the input data. The fmtstr may be composed of one or more whitespace characters, non-whitespace characters, and format specifications, as defined in the scanf function description.

Return Value

The sscanf function returns the number of input fields that were successfully converted. An EOF is returned if an error is encountered.

                     "%bd %d %ld",
                     &a, &b, &c);
  printf ("%d arguments read\n", argsread);

  printf ("Reading an unsigned byte, int, and long\n");
  argsread = sscanf ("2 44 98765432",
                     "%bu %u %lu",
                     &x, &y, &z);

                     &d, buf);
  printf ("%d arguments read\n", argsread);

  printf ("Reading two floating-point numbers\n");
  argsread = sscanf ("12.5 25.0",
                     "%f %f",
                     &f, &g);
