prints

prints — Prints at init-time using a printf() style syntax.

Description

Prints at init-time using a printf() style syntax.

Syntax

prints "string" [, kval1] [, kval2] [...]

Initialization

"string" -- the text string to be printed. Can be up to 8192 characters and must be in double quotes.

Performance

kval1, kval2, ... (optional) -- The k-rate values to be printed. These are specified in string with the standard C value specifier (%f, %d, etc.) in the order given. Use 0 for those which are not used.

prints is similar to the printks opcode except it operates at init-time instead of k-rate. For more information about output formatting, please look at printks's documentation.

Examples

Here is an example of the prints opcode. It uses the file prints.csd.

Example 634. Example of the prints opcode.
