Function std.stdio.writef

Writes formatted data to standard output (without a trailing newline).

void writef(alias fmt, A...) (
  A args
if (isSomeString!(typeof(fmt)));

void writef(Char, A...) (
  in Char[] fmt,
  A args


fmt The format string. When passed as a compile-time argument, the string will be statically checked against the argument types passed.
args Items to write.


In older versions of Phobos, it used to be possible to write:

writef(stderr, "%s", "message");

to print a message to stderr. This syntax is no longer supported, and has been superceded by:

stderr.writef("%s", "message");
