    Formatting Operator

    A formatting operator starts with a percent sign, %, and ends with a conversion character. It is mandatory to specify the conversion character. Optionally, you can specify identifier, flags, field width, precision, and subtype operators between % and the conversion character. Spaces are invalid between operators and are shown here only for readability.

    This table shows conversion characters to format numeric and character data as text.
