in reply to how to printf a matrix like this

The explanation of how to use printf formatting is in the help for sprintf. (the printf help really should point to this too).

To fix your problem you need to set a minimum width, try something like this :-

printf "%6.1f",$var;

    "The explanation of how to use printf formatting is in the help for sprintf. (the printf help really should point to this too)." [my emphasis]

    The printf documentation does point to this. It starts with:

    "Equivalent to print FILEHANDLE sprintf(FORMAT, LIST), ..."

    [FWIW, madM has already been provided with that information (in Re: printf matrix) as well as example sprintf usage in a number of places.]

[choroba]: I mean cheesy
[LanX]: lol
[ambrus]: no, the chess bishop itself is a joke on real bi-shops
[ambrus]: or at least on the stereotype of bi-shops
[choroba]: we call chess bishops "archers"
[Eily]: choroba sorry, I had to get that off my chess
[ambrus]: chess certainly hasn't started those stereotypes, like how kings aren't that powerful but has convinced their whole country to work for them, etc. it's just poured them to a nice clean form that would easily get propagated.
