cprintf

Syntax

 
#include <conio.h>

int cprintf(const char *_format, ...);

Description

Like printf (see section printf), but prints through the console, taking into consideration window borders and text attributes. There is currently a 2048-byte limit on the size of each individual cprintf call.

Return Value

The number of characters written.

Portability

ANSI/ISO C No
POSIX No

Implementation Note

It's not safe to call this function inside static constructors, because conio needs to be initialized, and its initialization is done by a static constructor. Since you don't have any control on the order in which static constructors are called (it's entirely up to the linker), you could have problems.

If you can detect the situation when one of the conio functions is called for the very first time since program start, you could work around this problem by calling the gppconio_init function manually (this is the function called by a static constructor).
