Why print sprintf ... instead of printf ...?

Optimising for fewest key strokes only makes sense transmitting to Pluto or beyond

    Hi Grandfather, because I would use

    say()
    but didn't want to introduce that change in my comment.

    And because usually I am doing

    $log->debug(sprintf 'format', @values)
    or even
    $msg = sprintf 'format', @values; $DEBUG && say $msg && $log->debug($msg);

    Basically, I've never used printf alone in the last 20 years, because it does not meet my needs.


    The way forward always starts with a minimal test.
