vsprintf (3p) - Linux Man Pages
vsprintf: format output of a stdarg
PROLOGThis manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual. The Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may not be implemented on Linux.
vfprintf, vprintf, vsnprintf, vsprintf - format output of a stdarg argument list
int vfprintf(FILE *restrict stream, const char *restrict
int vprintf(const char *restrict format, va_list ap);
int vsnprintf(char *restrict s, size_t n, const char *restrict format,
int vsprintf(char *restrict s, const char *restrict format, va_list ap);
The vprintf(), vfprintf(), vsnprintf(), and vsprintf() functions shall be equivalent to printf(), fprintf(), snprintf(), and sprintf() respectively, except that instead of being called with a variable number of arguments, they are called with an argument list as defined by <stdarg.h>.
These functions shall not invoke the va_end macro. As these functions invoke the va_arg macro, the value of ap after the return is unspecified.
Refer to fprintf().
The following sections are informative.
Applications using these functions should call va_end(ap) afterwards to clean up.
