jeanluca has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Dear Monks,

I just tried the following:
use warnings ; use strict ; my $total = 99 ; print "total is %s%\n", $total ;
Running this gives you/me the following warning:
Invalid conversion in printf: "%)" at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.7/M line 401.
Any suggestions how to get rid of this warning?

Thnx a lot
