Sounds an awful lot like a high school homework project to me. (Or part of one at least)

    Maybe, but the seeker didn't just copy and past the assignment, like some others. He asked for the best way to perform a very specific task, and demonstrated that he had read the docs enough to know that (s)printf was the right function to use, and even had a working, though suboptimal solution. A "this is homework" disclaimer is always nice, but I think this post is ok without it (even assuming it is homework).
