what if i don't want to always print out a newline? Simple, just use printf.

For years, I have been sitting here, railing and fuming silently against the supposed "brokenness" of printf's disrespect for -l. It's something I'd always put aside as a non-orthogonal oddity of the language.

My anger blinded me to the possibility of using my opponent's strength to my own advantage -- a classic judo move.

Thank-you for letting me see the error of my ways.
